The Three S's

By Joel Brens-

The Preemie Parent Alliance is a good place to start when seeking support

The three S's

I am constantly reminded of how close knit this community (as in the NICU) can be. When I take few minutes to connect the dots it's exciting to see how many people who mean so much to me have connected through social media. While I put most of my blood, sweat, and tears into Papas Of Preemies, this is merely one hub among countless amounts of support groups. The best part? There is so much support for each other it's humbling. Here are three S's you can utilize to make the biggest impact possible:

Seek- as in seek out others throughout the community. We may not all have similar stories, but chances are someone has been through and felt a lot of the same things you have. The only way you can discover this is by seeking it out.

Share- if you see a blog, an article, a picture, or a quote you like, share it! You never know if it will strike a cord with someone you know.

Support- one another. Every journey is different. But we are all here for the same reason: Because community gives us a sense of sanity, togetherness, and purpose.
