An annual Joplin event is reuniting kids that spent time in the neonatal intensive care unit and the nurses and doctors who cared for them. The Children’s Miracle Network held its 25th annual NICU reunion Saturday.

NICU graduates could enjoy games, face painting, and a free lunch, but the event has a bigger purpose. It allows parents to reconnect with the people that helped save their children’s lives when they were at their most vulnerable.

Freeman Health System Joplin is the local Children’s Miracle Network hospital.
