What a compassionate and yet painful essay about the support you provided to these babies and families, Erin. I cannot imagine the anguish those families experienced but I find comfort in knowing that you and the many other incredible healthcare providers out there did everything you could to help ease that experience.

I think back to my experience in the Special Care Nursery and admire those nurses for their unflagging devotion to other people's babies! Thank you for all that you and others do and have done for us.
