Theft from labor and delivery MHMC
July 16th 2017 was one of the best days of my life bringing my third child a beautiful daughter into this world, we woke up early and eager to bring our new addition home Tuesday July 18th when I began filling the car with all of the gifts and special things we had planned and purchased months before, I came back into mine and my wife's room in the labor and delivery unit at Legacy Mt Hood Medical Center after the first load of babies stuff around 830am, I assisted my wife in feeding and bathing our new little angel and went to load the rest of our things into the car so we could go home, when I came out 45 minutes after that first load my families vehicle was no where to be found. Not only our vehicle was gone but special things from friends and family that we had been given in celebration of our new baby. Among so many things our car seat base had been installed waiting for that first ride home that we never got to take. All of my necessities to work were also taken with the vehicle including a hard hat I was given from my father 11 years ago when I began my career at Walsh construction, tools, boots and much more were all taken. We had raced to the hospital Saturday for an emergency induction of labor because my wife's blood pressure was dangerously high which we are still working to get down to a normal level through all of this stress. We hope to be able to replace our babie items and possibly a cheap reliable vehicle for my family. Anything is greatly appreciated and please keep my family in your prayers. Thank you.+ Read More
Still no sign of our car but so very thankful for our beautiful family!
Still no leads on our vehicle, we are though very thankful for all of the generosity and prayers from all of you, we are still trying to reach our goal so that we can replace my husbands work tools, boots, iPad, hardhat ECT, also our children's belongings, I'd like to be able to take my daughter to the American Girl Doll store to replace her doll and take my son to Barnes and noble to replace his books he always kept in the little compartment behind the driver seat, I have SO many things I know can never be replaced that were in that car and it breaks my heart. Also people are posting on our Facebook posts regarding our stolen car and insinuating that it is a "sham", if you are weary in believing weather or not this is true we will happily provide you with our case number from the Gresham police department. It literally BREAKS my heart seeing those comments and people saying such terribly negative things, I wish this was all a big sham. It sure would be nice to wake up and have had this all just be a nightmare. Unfortunately that isn't the case. Thank you all again for everything we greatly appreciate it.
