LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY) – Some local moms are trying to make Christmas brighter for parents with children in the neo-natal intensive care unit.
Christina Daugereau and another mom Wednesday afternoon delivered ornaments to the NICU babies at Women’s and Children’s Hospital. This is the second year they’ve done that. Daugereau said parents appreciate the act of kindness during the holidays.
“Both of our children have been in the NICU during the holidays so we know how stressful and lonely and frustrating it is,” Daugereau said. “So we decided to make ornaments for the babies, kind of like a first ornament for them to try and brighten up their holidays a little bit.”
Daugereau said they couldn’t to go into the NICU last year because the hospital was taking flu precautions.
