I was born December 13, 1985, 3 months premature. I was one of the babies studied in the pilot program for NIDCAP. I am now 19 years old and a college sophomore studying journalism with a minor in foreign languages…I write to you in hopes that you…realize that I am another baby, turned young woman that you helped. I do not know where I would be without NIDCAP and hope that it continues to flourish.
