Q: How do I deal with congratulations from friends and families while my babies are in the NICU, but I’m not quite ready to celebrate?

A: One option is to call all the local florists and ask them to hold the flower orders, and just let you know who the sender was. Then when the babies come home, you can fill the house with flowers and joy. Similarly, you can put all gifts away in a safe place to be opened after the babies come home. Some families tell friends and family they plan to have a celebration party after all the multiples are home healthy and safe.
