Families who have little ones in Saint Luke's NICU celebrate every milestone, and each day is a gift. With the holiday season upon us, new parents may not be able to celebrate in the way they have imagined. 

Even though their baby's first Christmas may not look like they expected, Saint Luke's wants to make sure it is still extra special with a little help from the March of Dimes and one very special VIP.

All Saint Luke's Hospital NICU babies had the opportunity to be dressed as "gifts" and have their photos taken with Santa. Volunteers from the March of Dimes and Saint Luke's NICU staff handmade each individual package. Volunteer photographers from Faces of You Photography and Sally Morrow Photography captured keepsakes for the families.
