My family and I would like to offer our sincere thanks and gratitude to the three amazing nurses Yasmeen Chao, Kaela Beckley, and last but not least Agnes Coll (the three Kikis), who gave such amazing care to my sweet grandbaby Lilian! Lilian was admitted to the NICU immediately after her birth on April 25, 2018. She had difficulties breathing which turned into several genetic abnormalities. This, of course, landed her a 112-day stay in the NICU. Yasmeen, Agnes, and Kaela you went beyond what anyone could ever ask. Our thanks seem so small in comparison, as we know caring for Lilian was no easy task. You all became our lifeline during one of the most difficult times we have ever experienced in our lives. You all should be very proud of how you have made this difficult journey a little easier through your kindness and compassion. Yasmeen, Agnes, and Kaela have forever touched our lives. To us, they are shining stars whose light will forever remain in our hearts!
