90.3 WBHM | Birmingham -- While Christmas trees will tower over many a gift of clothing this holiday, there's one place where the clothes - tiny smocked garments for babies - will actually be the decorations on the tree. But the festive tree in the neo-natal intensive care unit -- or NICU -- of Children's Hospital is more than just a wardrobe booster -- it's a spirit-lifter for all involved, as explained in this audio postcard produced by WBHM's Steve Chiotakis.
