Because life is a gift we treasure each moment - The Gift of Life.


As parents of a premature baby ourselves, we formed The Gift of Life to offer hope, encouragement and support to parents of premature babies and neonatal intensive care units. Our purpose is to provide support to parents and their premature babies. --Rosie Moore, Founder of The Gift of Life


We are Passionate About Serving the Preemie Community:

The Gift of Life is a 501 (c)3 whose primary goal is to Support the Parents of Premature Infants. The goal is to assist them to regain back what they have lost during and after their time in the neonatal intensive care unit.

Studies have shown that parents of premature infants suffer from depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder.  When parents of premature infants, according to the study, receive help, their stress levels decrease and they start to slowly ease into parenthood/married life. The Mayors of Orlando have agreed that more support is needed for our Orlando residents and surrounding cities.

We offer a range of services to assist the families of premature infants who are in the NICU, or who have recently been released from it. Parents of preemies receive a variety of resources and emotional support from us online, by telephone, and in person. It is our aim to be a reliable source of helpful information on the topics that caretakers of preemies want to learn more about. The community events we hold in the Orlando, FL area not only help us raise funds to keep our organization going, but it gives all in the preemie community a chance to celebrate life, make new friends, and network.
