OUR HISTORY &
OUR FUTURE

Note from the President and Founder:
Welcome to Mighty Miracles Foundation.

The NICU was a journey that we never expected. We were introduced and immersed into the NICU with the birth of our second son. Kaleb was born at 28 weeks weighing 2lb 2oz. Entering the NICU is like entering into a brand new world with its own language, equipment, procedures, and way of life. Couple that with the fact that with the premature birth gone was the "typical" birth experience with congratulations, baloons, and flowers from family and friends. Gone were the baby things in the postpartum room. Here was this new life that had just been born and family and friends didn't know what to say or do. I get it, because I didn't know what to say or do. That is when the idea came that I wanted to do something to celebrate each life, no matter how short or small. 

The idea for Mighty Miracles continued to take shape for the 99 days I spent beside Kaleb's isolette. The passion for it grew as I would spend the afternoons rocking him and felt like a new parent all over again as I learned what it meant to care for a NICU baby.  Through it all came the idea for care packages for NICU families. 

Thank you for visitng our site and thank you in advance for helping us support the families going through the NICU and celebrating each life. 

God Bless, 
Amanda Dickinson
