Inspired Together

An inspiring moment from the communities we serve.


Born three years ago this morning, at six and a half weeks early, our “third-and-final” made his debut. Aside from his timing and the fact that he was a “two cord baby,” he was in phenomenal health. He did spend his first two weeks in your NICU – without incident. And for that we will be forever grateful.

But . . . I often think back to the anesthesiologist (there were two) who stepped in for my husband, who was still making his way to the hospital in the wee hours of the morning. That doctor held my hand and talked me through the first steps of my emergency c-section, during one of the most frightening moments of my life. He chatted with me, to keep me distracted. I remember that he was from Chicago and had a one year old daughter, at the time. He is the one that sent a nurse back to my room, to get my phone/camera. He took this picture. I never got a chance to thank him.

If there is a way to track him down and let him know how much his support, in that moment meant, I would be greatly appreciative. – Amy Roberto Comiskey
