Melissa has graciously shared her daughter Calypso's photographs and story with us. She was born in 2007 at the age of 29 weeks, 5 days and lived for 23 days before succumbing to NEC. Her story is linked on the photographs page under her photographs. Melissa started Calypso's Ocean in memory of her daughter.
Calypso's Ocean is actually a two part organization. One part is supplying an online memorial page for parents whose babies passed away while still in the Hospital or Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. A place for other people to read your child's name, see their photo, and take a moment of silence in their memory.Thank you, Melissa, for sharing your sweet daughter with us. May her memory be eternal!
The second part is donating bereavement items to NICU and OB wards. Trying to help each newly bereaved parent know they are not alone and someone out there does care about their angel and about what they as the parents are going through.
