We continue our focus on fetal care this month by honoring Siman Abdi and her twin daughters, Amina (left) and Rania, who were born Feb. 11 at 25 weeks.

Earlier in Siman's pregnancy, the sisters were diagnosed with twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS), which is a rare condition that occurs when one twin donates blood to the other while in the womb and, if left untreated, potentially can be fatal for both babies.

Thanks to the work of the Midwest Fetal Care Center, a collaboration between Abbott Northwestern Hospital and Children's, Siman's daughters are recovering at Children's and continue to grow stronger each day. http://bit.ly/1ifk7Wb

Brook Moore, MD, one of Children's pulmonologists, is one of the many already signed up to have her head shaved in honor of kids with cancer. Help her reach her $50,000 goal. All money raised goes to support childhood cancer research. http://ar.gy/5lr9

Summer is around the corner, we promise. No matter how much it snows in the next few days, the warm weather isn’t far away.

The season brings neighbors together for all kinds of outdoor activities. While your local barbecue or block party is a great time to reconnect with neighbors and enjoy a potluck, it’s also a great chance to review home and neighborhood safety tips with your children. http://bit.ly/1eFPyCP

If you've ever wanted to meet a superhero, look no further than Gavin Pierson. We've written a lot about this brave 7-year-old during the past few months, and we just published our latest update on Gavin who continues his epic battle against his brain tumor, which he nicknamed Joe Bully. Read about Gavin and watch our in-depth interview with Gavin and his incredible parents on our Mighty blog.

One grandmother says that hardly a day passes that she and her family aren’t grateful for the quality work, care, compassion and expertise of Children's, where Debbie Gillquist gave birth to her daughter. Thirty-three years later, her daughter gave birth to twin preemies, now 3 years old, at Children's. http://bit.ly/1eyo3jY
