Award-winning children's author, Danielle Leibovici, LMFT, has written and released #1 Amazon best-selling children's book 'Waiting for Emma: A Brother's Story' (For Siblings and Families with Babies in the NICU).

Books can be purchased and donated directly through CHKD, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, select retailers and signed copies are available through the author's website. After her own daughter sought treatment in the NICU at CHKD, Leibovici was asked by their medical community to create a children's book in support of all family members with a preemie or newborn in the NICU. 'It gives me great satisfaction that from such a dark time in our family's life, this beautiful book is here to touch and support the very families it was written for. A true full circle moment.

The sensitivity, support, and useful resources for all family members, are invaluable. Bravo! Thank you, Danielle Leibovici.' Heather Wilson, NICU Mother, shares, 'I didn't even realize the impact the NICU experience had taken on each of us. Joey, my son, completely opened up about his feeling after reading this book. I also learned that by not sharing my feelings, I was not leading by a good example. We are grateful for a book like this!'
