The families shared stories and experiences while the children played games, built sand castles, sped down inflatable slides and enjoyed Mickey Mouse-themed displays and activities.
“Graduates” also added their footprints to the Stork’s Landing Lullaby Wall. The wall is constructed of tiles representing more than 400 high-risk infants who have been cared for by the hospital’s multi-disciplinary medical team.
