I have been part of the MOST family since 2003 when I found out I was having triplets. One of the nurses told me it was a great network for parents of multiples, and she was right! MOST has helped me with so much.
I had my trio at 29 weeks via emergency C-section and they stayed in the NICU for 40 days. Between many hospital visits and sleepless nights, I looked to MOST to get me through with kind words and tons of information about what I was going through and what I could expect once I brought my babies home. There was always someone to take my call, hold my hand and stop my tears.
When one of my daughters wasn’t hitting her milestones I knew something was wrong, and again MOST was there for me. I found out my daughter had CP. I was crushed; I did not know what to do. The doctor just walked into the office and gave me the horrible news that my daughter would not walk, talk and possibly not see and then just dismissed me! MOST put me in touch with other families that were going through similar issues and it gave me strength and hope.
Recently I reached out to MOST and asked for assistance in getting my daughter a stroller to help me take her out. She was always on the sidelines watching her siblings play sports, ride bikes and just enjoy being kids. She could never keep up and got very tired at the park. MOST came through for me again, calling me back two days later to say they would be able to get my daughter her stroller! It came five days later and brought happy tears to my eyes. – Marisol
