Our son, Patrick, was born at your hospital on March 19, 2010. We met Patrick in the Meriter NICU on March 30, 2010 after his birth parents selected us to be his adoptive parents. The Meriter NICU staff was absolutely amazing. Prior to us meeting Patrick, the staff provided caring support to his birth parents. After our arrival, the staff was so kind to us and helped us to learn about caring for a preemie. When we brought him home on April 4, 2010 we couldn't have been happier with the care provided by the Meriter NICU staff.
At 5 months old, it was discovered that Patrick had a significant brain abnormality. He passed away on June 28, 2012 at 27 months old. We will never forget meeting him in the NICU for the first time and the compassionate care the staff provided to him. On the third anniversary of meeting our son we just wanted to say thank you, Meriter!
