Having someone who can connect with people on a personal level is incredibly important, and Julie is that person.

My son was born 8 weeks early and was our first child.  My first few days in the NICU were terrifying.  All of the nurses there were amazing and kind, but I was so scared.  I visited him every day.  Julie was assigned to him a week or so after he was born and that day was probably one of the best days of my life.  Julie talked to me while I was visiting and made me feel so comfortable.  We had great conversations.  She made some photo collages of my son that really meant a lot to me.  I told my mom and husband all about her.  When my husband finally met her he said, "She is like a best friend".  Having someone who can connect with people on a personal level is incredibly important, and Julie is that person.  She changed my entire perspective and made me so comfortable and happy.  I doubt I would have made it through that period in my life as easily and successfully as I did if it were not for her.
