Full Circle Moments


In Full Circle Moments: What 20 Years in Neonatology Taught Me About Life, Love & Loss, Dr. Terri Lynn Major-Kincade invites us to join her on a roller-coaster ride through a fascinating world of magic, miracles, plastic boxes, blessings, and burdens-the world of the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

In a montage of interwoven stories and poignant examples, Dr. Terri explains how she helps tiny human beings in plastic boxes say both “hello” and “goodbye” to their parents, and how she helps to empower the families of those infants to make difficult, seemingly impossible, decisions.

In a heartfelt tribute, she tenderly thanks the preemies, her tiny patients, for helping her to discover the power of the human spirit, to experience moments where the art of medicine supersedes the science of medicine, and to be reminded that, even if it only lasts for a few weeks or days, all life is precious.
