My hope is to raise enough to allow Jen the extra leave she and Ellie so critcally need and alleviate the financial pressure ahead for Corby. The NICU experience is consuming; it will occupy their every thought in the coming months and there's really no feasible way for Jen to return to work with her baby clinging to life away from her. However, even if Ellie is healed through God's grace and is able to come home on schedule, developmentally she will still be a newborn and need round the clock care.
I know during a time of crisis people often ask, "What can I do? How can I help?"
First and foremost I ask you please keep Ellie, Jen, and Corby in your prayers. Prayers to heal Ellie and bring comfort to Jen and Corby.
Next, if you feel led please consider donating. Having been down this road before I can share no NICU parent should be forced back to work before they are ready. Caring for a critical infant is more than a full time job, it's all consuming.
Or consider selecting something from their registries at Amazon and Target.
