 WE IN NEW YORK STATE, and OTHER STATES I AM SURE, currently have on the books a sweeping policy/procedure. As of now, when a child is admitted into the hospital, both parents are not permitted to accompany the child. It is common knowledge to most that this policy has been in effect for quite sometime. We have friends, whom almost 10 months ago gave birth to their own miracle, it was a difficult delivery, they knew it would not be an easy beginning to their baby’s journey. For a premature baby and the parents the milestones they strive for may not come as quickly as they’d hoped. They persevere and they work their tails off to make sure their child has the best shot possible. It’s a beautiful scene to watch, and to see that work come to fruition in the form of crawling, speaking, saying “Mama” amd “Dada”, those are testaments to the hard work.
Right now, as I wrote this for everyone to see. These parents are apart, their baby of no choice of her own, can only have one parent to comfort her, to support her, to hold her tightly and suppress the fear and pain of being poked and prodded. I am not naive, I fully comprehend the severity of our collective situation, the way the virus moves, affects, and infects. However, today I was able to walk into a bar and grill, grab a bite to eat and a drink unencumbered by a mask, once I was seated. It’s beyond comprehension that those policies are acceptable, whilst a parent, having their spouse there to support one another in a trying time involving the most important thing in the world to them is not permitted.
What I want to convey is, I’m done with policy over people! I will be drafting an online petition for the State Of New York to amend this policy swiftly and orderly, immediately. Join Me in getting these children and parents the support they need and deserve, one word that can change everything in today’s social, political, and economical climate, COMPASSION!
