Seven Tiny Miracles is filled with true stories of the harrowing world of the neonatal intensive care unit, where no parent expects his or her baby to start out, and where miracles struggle to outpace heartache. In her book, Yvonne shares heart-breaking and heart-warming stories and gives the reader an inside look at the lives of medical professionals who work around the clock to ensure that the littlest of us get the greatest start possible.

Each story begins with a traumatic event and tells of the nerve-wracking and over-whelming ordeal faced by parents and their families. The reader learns about the lives of nurses and doctors, their hopes, their dreams, and their shortcomings. Sometimes it's hilarious, sometimes it's tragic, and often it's maddenng, as life in NICU is always, literally, on the edge.

The stories will make you laugh and cry while amazing you at what goes on in the NICU, showing you how even the most fragile of new lives can result in tremendous joy.
