Every Friday is double-cuddle baby time
at PWL Lloyd

August 5th, 2019

Sarah Walker may be on maternity leave from her position as General Manager of Points West Living Lloydminster, but since the arrival of her twin daughters this past spring, she can’t stay away. Every Friday afternoon, she packs up the babies and comes in to give residents and care partners some baby cuddle time – times two.

Surprised... shocked... blessed

Interim General Manager, Allyn Andrews says everyone at PWL Lloydminster feels a part of Sarah’s journey. “Sarah always wanted to have kids but wasn’t sure it would be something she would ever experience,” Allyn says. “When she found out she was pregnant she was so surprised, and when she found out she would be having twins she was shocked but felt so blessed to be having two babies.”

“On March 29, 2019, Sarah’s two beautiful baby girls arrived,” says Allyn. “Charlie Ann was born first weighing 5 pounds 6 ounces, and Ellie Virginia followed quickly behind weighing 4 pounds 10 ounces. Sarah says that every day since she has not stopped smiling and her heart is always growing with the love she has for them.”

"Are the babies coming?"

Sarah quickly established Friday afternoons as her visiting time to PWL Lloydminster. “Every Friday morning the question can be heard all over the community – Are the babies coming?" says Allyn, "and the excitement builds as news spreads that they will be here in the afternoon.”

“As soon as Sarah walks in the door and takes the girls out of their car seats they are whisked away by care partners eager to hold them, and gently passed around to other care partners and residents – basically anyone who wants their weekly dose of baby cuddles,” Allyn adds. “It’s exciting to see how the girls have grown and changed over the past week, and to discuss whether they look more like Mom or Dad.”

“Sarah loves that she can share her two little blessings with her family of care partners – employees and residents at Points West Living. And we feel equally blessed to be a part of this new chapter in Sarah’s life and look forward to her weekly visits.”
