i came across this heartwarming Halloween news in a Swiss newspaper

it is about nurse Katie Windsor of the Catawba Valley Hospital NC, who makes special little outfits for premature little Halloween Heroes

only after in dept searching in the net did i find an article about this story in English, which saves me to translate

HICKORY, N.C. -- Batman, Superman, Supergirl, even ninja turtles -- they're all popular Halloween costumes for little kids -- but for babies born premature, Halloween is often a forgotten holiday. …………

For parents like Christa Greene, who has 5-week-old Akira, seeing their kids in the homemade costumes gives them a sense of normalcy, as their baby is living in the hospital full-time.

"I was very surprised," Greene said. "I thought it was wonderful, it's awesome that she makes these and takes the time out of her schedule to do this for these babies so they can be dressed up for Halloween even though they don't get to be home."Text

and here the link to the hospital’s facebook with more of these adorable images
