KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- This may be the cutest story of the year.
The March of Dimes is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to "improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality."
“The parents were able to choose their babies' costumes to match the babies' personalities,” said Michelle Manuel, the hospital’s director of media relations. “The idea is to be able to allow parents to have a sense of normalcy. In the NICU you might be there for weeks or months and this is to help spend that first Halloween and those special first moments together -- make those special family memories with us.”
Costumes range from superheroes and baseball players to butterflies.
The NICU staff says they are already planning costume ideas for the 12 Days of Christmas.
