Ellie & Beckham’s Story
“When you are a new parent, you don’t know what you don’t know,” said Damian, Ellie’s dad. “ChildServe puts your mind at ease. Coming here and having experts who know what to prepare for was really helpful.”
“Being active in the sessions and learning what the therapists were doing allowed us to then do it at home,” said Janice, Ellie’s mom. “We were able to learn how to do specific skills with Ellie, like how to help her roll and walk.”
“Ellie amazed us all. She grew like a weed and met her milestones,” said Hannah. “Now, I have the pleasure of helping her younger brother Beckham. He too was born early and will need extra support to grow and develop.”
“Now with Beckham, we know what to expect and how to prepare,” said Damian. “That wealth of knowledge has by far made the most impact on us.”
Beckham is well on his way to reaching his developmental goals and will soon be caught up to his big sister.
“As parents in the NICU, it seems horrible in the moment but you have to realize there is a team of experts that are there to help you,” said Damian. “ChildServe gave us hope. Parents have to know that there is hope at the end of the tunnel.”
