Babies So Special

I met two remarkable mothers and their babies today. Cathyleen, mother of Caleb, and Camille, mother of Lauren, are the founders of Babies So Special, a non-profit organization based out of Loma Linda Hospital in Southern California that provides support for families with special needs babies. They provide a mom-to-mom support network and financial support for families who are overwhelmed by their responsibilities in caring for acutely ill children. They also provide assistance with funeral costs to families whose babies don't survive. Cathyleen and Camille met when their babies were born, within days of each other, with congenital heart defects. Stop by their website -- they are truly inspiring.
