My daughter, Lily Mae Schwab, 20 months, has the best grandparents! Lily’s grandparents, Donna Mae and Tom Frisk, started taking care of her before she was even born. While I was pregnant, Lily’s twin died and Lily’s life also was in jeopardy. I went on bed rest for 12 weeks and Lily’s grandparents moved to the Twin Cities to live with us, cook for us, clean for us, drive me to doctor appointments and stayed until after she was born healthy on Jan. 12, 2011. Since moving back home, Lily’s grandma and grandpa come down to the Twin Cities two Fridays a month so she doesn’t have to go to day care. They have Lily for sleepovers, take her camping, take her to story time at the library, take her to the waterpark and are very involved in her life. Lily is truly blessed with the best grandparents, and we are so grateful for all their love!
