All Wrapped Up for the Holidays

Today, newborn Shalynn Ashley Don Schaeffer got an extra dose of holiday cheer. A group of retired Dominican Hospital Birth Center nurses called The Grateful Thread delivered a large batch of hand-sewn, oversized holiday stockings to new parents at Dominican Hospital, including Shalynn’s mom and dad, Erica Dawn Owens and Nicholas Schaeffer. The Grateful Thread members—who include Teresa Dareau, Georgia Magnabosco, Kathy Ruiz, and Annie Tokarz—have been sewing and donating the cozy stockings for more than 20 years, and all babies born at Dominican Hospital in December go home in one.
