Encouraging Message: Picking Up the Pieces

Many NICU Parents experience broken dreams as part of the birth of their baby. Their initial dreams of a normal birth with a healthy child have been changed and NICU parents have to quickly adjust their reality to include having a child in the NICU.

This quote by artist and writer Flavia is a helpful encouraging message to NICU Parents to pick up the pieces:
If one dream should fall and
break into a thousand pieces,

never be afraid
to pick one of those pieces up

and begin again.

You can hear more about picking up the pieces by listen to the NICU Podcast or read the transcript that I created on "Dreaming New Dreams after Picking up the Pieces of Broken Dreams" at the NICU Parent Support Audio & Podcast Channel.
