Monday was a special night for a lot of young families - it was Trinity Mother Frances' Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, or NICU, graduation for the class of 2012.
More than 100 families attended the celebration at the Rose Garden center.
The babies received a certificate, a T-shirt, and were able to take photos with a cap and a diploma to mark leaving the NICU and becoming healthy, like Dominique Gossett is now after her two-and-a-half-week stay in the NICU last year.
"It's like a real graduation," said Nadiyah Gossett, Dominique's mother. "It's like she actually went from being this small little baby to this beautiful little baby that you see here, and it's absolutely wonderful. We're very proud."
Trinity Mother Frances Hospital serves more than 400 families each year in the NICU. They said they invite all their babies who have been in NICU through August each year so that they don't have very tiny babies on hand who might get sick.
