Meet Gracie and Luke, our six-year-old twins!
We waited for them forever and can't remember life without them.

A Special Christmas Party at Kaiser

A few weeks ago, Eddie received a phone call from his friend, Sharon, in the Physical Therapy Department at Kaiser. She wanted to invite us all to a Christmas Party at Kaiser. We both thought this was odd. We've never been invited to one before! I couldn't go, but Eddie decided he would. Sharon insisted that he bring Gracie and Luke. So, Eddie kept Gracie and Luke home from day care and took the babies (by himself) to Kaiser.

When he arrived, all of his friends from Physical Therapy, Physical Medicine, and Outpatient Physical Therapy were there having their department holiday parties. They had planned them together and the guests of honor were Eddie and the babies. These nurses, PAs, and doctors have been in our lives for years and years. They've walked in the Diabetic Walk with us, cried with us when Eddie was sick or in pain, laughed and celebrated with us when the Twinsies were born. When they heard that we had been displaced by the fires, they decided that they wanted to make sure that we had a fantastic Christmas.

They had tons of clothes and toys for Gracie and Luke. They had gift cards and a soft blanket for Eddie and me. They gave us so many fantastic things that Eddie cried from the love he felt from his Kaiser Family.



To all our friends at Kaiser, Thank You! Your gifts were amazing and Gracie and Luke had a fantastic time with you today. We are blessed to have you all in our lives!
