Rockford Register Star: Mercyhealth NICU nurse handmakes baby costumes

ROCKFORD–Mercyhealth NICU nurse JoAnn Gorsline handmade 52 costumes for all neonatal intensive care unit patients at the Rockford hospital this year. Each costume was different and included designs with animals, food and characters such as Oscar the Grouch, to name a few. “It can be a really hard time for families celebrating fun holidays while in the hospital, this is a way we can make things better and brighter and give the families a sense of normalcy,” JoAnn said.
