Fighting For Answers
As a parent, seeing your child hurt or sick is one of the worst feelings you can experience. You want to do everything in your power to help them and take away their pain. You would give anything to change places with them. Fighting for answers as to why they are struggling is not even a question. You do whatever you need to do to get them healthy again.
I’ve read some amazing stories about parents advocating for the health of their children, and today’s story is one of them. Not only did Heather fight for answers during her pregnancy, but she continued to advocate for her daughter’s health throughout her NICU stay, and subsequent hospital stays.
As a NICU mom, I am truly in awe of the strength it must have taken to go back to the hospital once you think you’ve come home to stay. But, as a mother, you must find that strength however and wherever you can. Your baby is depending on you.
I’m so honored to bring you Kyliana’s story, as told by her mom, Heather. You will see such amazing strength from the entire family as they navigate their journey and fight for those answers.
1. Tell us about your baby.
2. Do you know what caused your premature birth?
3. How long was your NICU stay? What was the hardest part?
4. How are you, your family, and your baby doing now?
5. What advice do you have for a new preemie parent?
Thank you so much to Heather for sharing her story and sweet Kyliana with us. I’m so happy that she’s doing well now, and can’t wait to hear more updates. She is such a strong little girl, and I know we’ll see some amazing things from her.
