Hi everyone! My name is Ashley Wright. I am not a doctor, a psychologist or a writer. I am an average first time mom to two beautiful thriving babies...who happened to arrive 14 weeks early. I believe I survived as a NICU mom and am now able to reflect back on the NICU experience as a positive and even special part of our family story because of a set of standards I chose to live by. If you are a NICU mom or know someone that is and are looking for advice or want to share your own visit this link. 
 
 
I wrote this while in the NICU and a few weeks following as a therapeutic activity and though I would share on the off chance it would help other families out there. What a life changing experience this has been.
