From the Back Cover:

"A superb book that should be required reading for parents with prematurely born infants."
-- Ralph D. Feigin, M.D., President and CEO, Baylor College of Medicine, Chairman, Department of Pediatrics, Texas Children's Hospital

"An invaluable tool for families who find themselves coping with the myriad medical, emotional, financial, and mind-numbing decisions that follow a premature birth. Finally someone has written a comprehensive and very personal guide that answers all the tough questions these traumatized parents don't even know how to ask. . . . This is the book I've been waiting for."
-- Candace Hurley, Executive Director/Founder, Sidelines National Support Network

"This book is a wonderful resource for parents experiencing a high-risk pregnancy or parents of a premature infant. Readers will realize that they are not alone--that others have gone through similar experiences and have similar feelings. As a neonatologist and a parent of a premature infant, I found this book to be very informative and engaging and recommend it highly for physicians, nurses, and other professionals caring for premature infants."
-- Thomas N. Hansen, M.D., CEO, Children's Hospital, Chairman, Department of Pediatrics, Ohio State University
