Our NICU is overflowing with babies! Because the Toddler House is full, we have not been able to transfer any of the older children to the Toddler House as they have turned 2 years old. We have 3 years old children at the main house. We have never had so many older children at the main house for a very long time!
It is too bad we cannot get the older children to the Toddler House. These children need to go to pre-school and just be outside more and running all day long and getting rid of some of that excess energy!
Hopefully, more children will be going home to their adoptive families soon. We also have several children here right now for assistance who will go home as they get well and gain weight. But until that time, our NICU and every other area is over full!
We have 15 babies in the NICU and so I had John Bickel bring some new cribs down from Fort Jacques tonight and we were able to get some of the children moved. We moved 2 out of NICU this afternoon, so this helps a little for our NICU staff, but it’s still pretty crowded! Here are photos of some of the babies in the NICU today.
