Comfort a Grieving Parent with a 'Thinking of You' Card

NICU Parents face many challenges from having their baby hospitalized and having to suddenly learn how to cope with an unexpected outcome for the birth of their baby.

One of the things that helped when we were coping with our NICU admission is knowing that we had family and friends thinking about us and holding our daughter in their thoughts and prayers.

Send a Thinking of You Card
One easy way of doing this is to send a "Thinking of You" Card.
A "Thinking of You" Card is a great way to let a NICU Parent know your thoughts are with them during this challenging time and show your support.

A Thinking of You Card is also a way to quickly acknowledge the situation once you have heard about it.

Other Card Options

There are other sentiments that you might want to send on a blank card that would convey your supports.
  • Thinking of you
  • Thinking of you during this difficult time
  • I'm praying for you
  • You are in my thoughts
  • Our thoughts and prayers are with you
  • You are in my thoughts and prayers.
  • My thoughts are with you now.
  • We all join in sending you our heartfelt love.
  • May God's Grace strengthen you
Sending cards may be an old tradition, but often during challenging times, falling back on those old traditions is what helps us feel we are doing something and helps us to cope with life's challenges.
