Instagram LIVE Experience
On May 18, 2022, we sat down with veteran Adam Wood, author of 'Our Preemie Adventure' and founder of @Preemie_Adventures to open up about our NICU Journey, life as parents and caregivers, and creating Rook's Books Publishing, LLC. Take a listen to hear how we hope to encourage and support other families through our own experiences.
Check out our Media Page to listen to the audio from the interview, that felt more like a conversation between two families of caregivers and NICU Warriors!
Rooks Books is a collection of our children's favorite books, including those written and published by me, Shecara Squires Reives. It all started with a 2020 Book Drive, during the height of COVID-19. We collected and delivered over 1,500 books to Riley Hospital in Indianapolis to support growing families. During this drive, we noticed the lack of children's books that shared the joys of unique stories like our son Carmine's. In 2021, I decided to tell that story, in memory of his twin brother Rook William. And with that, Rooks Books Publishing, LLC was born. With each book sold, a portion of the profits will go towards annual donations to NICU departments at hospitals.
