“Dear NICU babe,

I don’t know your story. I don’t know who you are.

And perhaps I never will.

But maybe, just maybe, you’ll do great things in your life.

All you need is a fighting chance, right?

So you fight little one.

You give it all you’ve got.

Whatever you’re going through, fight.

And to your Mama, lord.

I can’t imagine what she’s going through either.

But her baby is having a hard time and y’all both need a little help.

And if my milk can help in any way then it is my greatest pleasure.

The 700 hours I have spent pumping and cleaning and packaging this up for you is all worth it.

So take it. Fight.

And grow up to be amazing! I believe in you.


Donor Number: 0000060340

So grateful that God has called me to do this.

I am so so blessed.

We’re going on 8,000 ounces to be donated!

I’m so proud of each ounce.

It is SO much work. All of it is worth it.”
