Parents whose babies are being treated in this hospital’s always terrifying neonatal intensive care unit receive a message of hope every day.

Every time parents or nurses walk down the hall, they envision a positive future for the little patients.

Mesa, Arizona Hospital, Banner Children’s at Desert, created a ‘Wall of hope‘as a reminder for families to look forward to better days ahead.

The wall features photographs that highlight former NICU patients in stark and inspiring contrast.

The images show the now healthy and happy children holding pictures of themselves as small babies hooked up to monitors and weighing only a few pounds.

It’s clear from these photos that the children are proud to have overcome great setbacks as babies with the help of their families and medical team.
