Encouraging Message: Standing at Times of Challenge

In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Birthday and the upcoming National Day of Service, today's inspiring quote comes from one of his inspiring sermons.

These words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. can serve as an encouraging message for NICU Parents:

The ultimate me
asure of
a man (or woman)

is not where

he (or she) stands
in moments of comfort,

but where
he (or she) stands
at times
of challenge and controversy.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

NICU Parents find themselves facing times of challenge, a true test of their measure. Many of us discover internal strengths that they many never have even known they possessed.

It is this new-found strength that sustains us through the NICU challenge and allows us to hang on, when things seem impossible.
