Our Kids in the US News

As I mentioned a while back, the fine people at Rockford Memorial Hospital asked to feature our family in an advertorial they placed in the Midwestern edition of US News & World Report. The ad ran in the July 17 issue, I believe. For those of you who don’t live around here or missed that issue, though, the hospital has granted me permission to post a PDF of the ad here.

It’s just a glimpse into what the whole experience was like, but I thought you might enjoy it. If you read the article, you’ll notice they had 25 medical professionals in the delivery room for the quads’ birth. As the team rolled my wife into the room, one of the nurses brought me a chair and said, “If you feel yourself starting to feel faint, sit down. You see all of these people? None of them are here for you.”

And that’s just the way I wanted it.

  1. That’s a great little read. The kids look great in that pic…but where does the blond hair come from? 😉

    I was incredibly nervouse when my wife and I had our daughter, it was a last minute c-section so it ended up being a surgery…I can’t imagine the nerves with four little ones on the way.

  4. Yeah, Brett, that was the longest six months of my life—until the kids were born, and then the year got longer. As for the hair, my wife is blonde with blue eyes, so they take after her that way. Strangely four of our five kids look distinctly like me—Patrick looks most like Ann—but they all have her coloring.
