N.I.C.U. BABIES GET HALLOWEEN COSTUMES

A nurse has been making Halloween costumes for babies in the N.I.C.U. For 20 years, babies in the neonatal intensive care at Maxine Dunitz Children’s Health Center at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles have gotten handmade Halloween costumes. Dorothy Williams was inspired by a nurse who cared for her own premature twin babies and left a tiny heart decoration on their incubator for Valentine's Day. Williams loved the gesture and began to pay that back, first by volunteering to support families with babies in the N.I.C.U.  When holidays came around, she began to make themed beanies for the infants. Then in 1997, she took on an even bigger challenge: full Halloween costumes. This year, she has also inspired her 13-year-old granddaughter and the child's friend in Girl Scouts, who are helping make costumes inspired by children's book characters.

How sweet is this?
