As teachers, my wife and I loved the idea of sharing our wedding day with The Children’s.

We saw The Children’s represented at yet …
To all the staff, nurses, physicians of the Montreal Children’s Hospital,
I am forever grateful for all the people of the MCH who have helped us over the last three years. Your kindness and care for my daughter Kaitlin and our family is immeasurable.

I knew this fact as an educator, but I also experienced it first-hand as a parent.

Looking back, those nine years were a blur. But I will always remember and be …
Our daughter, Éloïse Baxter, was born on July 30, 2011. Hours after her birth she was transferred to the Montreal Children’s Hospital NICU, 9-C. Little did we know then but for the next 490 days, we would call 9-C ‘home’. We wanted to write this short thank you letter of to everyone involved in caring for our daughter.
