Last December I had an emergency C-section where the greatest gift of my life was brought into this world, my precious daughter. She was born at 25 weeks, was very tiny (only 14.3 ounces), and had to be put on life support. During her stay in NICU, Betsy was the nurse that was assigned to care for our daughter when we did not know how and couldn't. Just two days after we were blessed with our daughter, my husband and I had to make the difficult decision that no parent should even have to make and Besty was there for us every step of the way. The compassion and sympathy Besty showed for us was more than my husband and I could ever have expected; it made one of the most difficult times in our lives just a little bit easier and touched our hearts so greatly that she has left an imprint on our lives.
