Many of you have asked how our fundraiser/benefit concert for Mount Sinai Hospital’s Perinatal Parents Association went last weekend. We want to give a BIG thank you to everyone who came out and supported our cause and to those who supported us from afar. It truly means a lot to us to be able to “give back” to Mount Sinai after having a preemie in the NICU. We are so thankful to be able to contribute to something so important and near and dear to our hearts. Making sure we can help other parents with babies in the NICU is so very important to us…especially during the Holiday season.

Thank you! It seems only natural to give back 🙂
Thank you so much! I wish we could do more, but living 6 hrs away, this seemed the best thing we could do. I certainly have to thank my BFF for helping me. She is so awesome.
