We're Honored to Help Families Feel Whole
When Sondra Rae, a popular morning DJ on XL106.7, gave birth to her twins, they had to be rushed to the NICU at AdventHealth for Children. Like so many other parents, she and her wife were scared and overwhelmed to put their newborns’ lives in someone else’s hands. Watch Rae share her family’s emotional journey from holding their twins for the first time to finally going home happy and healthy as a family of four.
After 10 long years, TJ was finally able to say he was a big brother, however due to COVID-19 visitation restrictions, he was unable to hold his little sister Lexi for a whole month! We were honored to bear witness to this special moment as one of our very own NICU grads, Lexi, was able to meet her big brother for the first time! Join us in celebrating with Lexi and her family as they get to go home as a new family of four.
