Kleenex has published a beautiful video depicting the gratitude several parents express for a NICU nurse, entitled, “Tiny Miracles,” which has a significant pro-life message.
“The NICU is an intensive care which means our babies are very critical and we don’t know if they’re even going to make it through a shift,” says Renee, a NICU nurse at WellStar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, Georgia as the video opens.
“These parents, they don’t get to take their babies home. I feel like if I treat the babies like I would want somebody to treat my baby when I’m not there, that’s the most important thing,” she adds.
Nurse Renee says she keeps in touch with families once they go home and enjoys taking part in the joy of sending a baby that was never expected to survive or to leave the NICU home.
The emotional part comes when Renee is escorted into a room where she is asked to watch a video of all the parents she helped as she cared for their babies in the neonatal intensive care unit.
“She loved my child as her own child,” states one loving parent about the nurse.
“You are our hero,” said another.
“There are not enough words to thank you for all you have done,” said another tearfully.

Kleenex rightly shows their tissues in use as Nurse Renee is overwhelmed by these grateful parents.
Viewers will most likely grab for a Kleenex, as I did, themselves as they see this beautiful exchange of love take place.
“I don’t do what I do for any kind of thank you,” said Renee, “But it’s a wonderful feeling to be appreciated,” she added.
As you watched this film and the tears well up, keep in mind that every day, just like this Georgia nurse, pro-life men and women keep watch over babies that are not expected to make it out as well.
This nurse’s attitude to treat every NICU baby as her own is the same motivation each pro-life person feels as they stand in the gap to protect innocent babies from abortion.
And, one day, just like nurse Renee, pro-lifers may be greeted with the faces of all those that they defended and will have a tearful reunion in Heaven, like Renee was privileged to have.
But… because appreciation is important now, I wanted to say thank you to a just few of the many wonderful caretakers of the unborn I know:
- Thank you Michelle Herzog, thank you Lynn Mills, thank you Bud and Tara Shaver, thank you Terri Everett, thank you Leslie Hanks, thank you John Pisciotta, thank you Tim and Terri Palquist, thank you Allura, Lydia, Laura Handy, Jay, Monte and all the others who sacrifice their lives for unborn children.
Your kindness and love for babies targeted for abortion and their moms is appreciated!
