Katie Windsor, a 35-year-old nurse, has dedicated her time to making superhero costumes for the premature babies. With the help of her mother, she crocheted each and every superhero cape for the 17 babies who would be in the NICU for Halloween.

From Superman to Batman, to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, to princesses, these costumes manage to make thousands smile, including their parents.

It is not a part of her nurse duties, but Windsor always tries to do something for her little patients and their parents during the holidays.

“I’ve never had to go home and leave my baby,” Windsor told WBTV. “I just think it’s something I can do for the parents that are having to go home and leave half their heart here.”

Windsor got a lot of attention for her costumes as photos were shared and viewed by thousands on social media. She is already preparing for Christmas.
