Notes to the SickKids® NICU
On one very special wall in the SickKids® NICU are dozens of notes from families. Below, we share those real NICU stories and thank you notes as a reminder of the even brighter future a new NICU will offer.
Thank you from baby Noah’s family.
"Thank you from the bottoms of our hearts to all the amazing staff and volunteers in the SickKids NICU for caring for baby Noah during his 2 month stay in early 2021. In a time where our stress and emotions ran high it truly felt like a second home. Our medical teams and the NICU staff were like family during that time, who cared for us with warmth and compassion each and every day we were there."
Thank you from baby Liam’s family.
"Through the ups, downs, happy, and scary; words cannot express the admiration and thanks that need to be given to the SickKids NICU staff. Being a NICU parent can be very scary because you never know what every minute, hour or day looks like but having the support of the staff and volunteers gave us the strength we needed to face those challenges and help our son through the most difficult time of his life. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, we will always hold onto you in our hearts."
Thank you from baby Jessica’s family.
"Our daughter Jessica was born very sick. She was rushed across to you by tunnel within an hour of her birth where you cared for her until she was stable enough to be moved up to 6A a month later. In the NICU she was given amazing one on one care, we were blown away by everyone’s dedication to our baby girl’s wellbeing and helping her in her first leg of her journey at SickKids. We are deeply grateful to everyone in the SickKids NICU for saving and caring for our Jessica."
