I work in the NICU at a large hospital in the heart of the city. When children are born with deficiencies, they are sent to my unit. It is here that I take their vitals, feed them, change them, give them medicine, and most importantly, love on them and pray for them each day.
Some of these children have parents who stop by regularly, and some have parents that are out of the picture. I see both happy and sad situations as well as outcomes every day. Regardless of the circumstance, I treat each child as if he or she were my very own.
I believe nursing is what I was called to do, and to love on these children and pray for them daily is an absolute privilege. Our God is a loving and sovereign God. I want these children to feel my prayers as I take care of them, and to know that they are loved.
