A family in Driggs, Idaho, is finally back on their feet thanks to a secret Santa’s generous gift that helped them through the past year. In November 2019, the anonymous donor surprised the Crow family with health insurance for one year and $50,000 to help them finish building their house, according to EastIdahoNews.com:

“Erica and Brad had been living in their camp trailer inside a shop for a few years. Brad had been working on building their home when he fell and fractured his leg bone,” the outlet said. Brad’s accident led to several more health challenges such as a staph infection, the loss of his leg, and a hip replacement.

Reporter Nate Eaton recently caught up with the Crow family as they sat inside their finished home.

“There were a lot of days that we thought that the trailer and the shop was gonna be where we were gonna stay for quite some time. Honestly, if we hadn’t gotten the Santa gift, the secret Santa gift, we probably would still be in the trailer,” Erica told him.

“It was a humongous help for us. We are incredibly grateful for it… I don’t even have words right now,” she continued.

Brad also expressed his gratitude for the gift that helped his family through the past year.

“We just really want to thank secret Santa and the people that were involved with this. It changed our lives,” he said.

The community also stepped in to assist, according to Erica, who said they believe there are other people more deserving than them.

“But it has been incredibly humbling to have people, not just in our community but from around the world that have shared their love and concern for us and wanted him to get better and our lives to be better and we are so very grateful for it,” she noted.

Following their interview, YouTube users were excited to learn that the Crow family finished their home.

“Great to see them all together. Stay strong!” one person said.

“This is the follow up I was really hoping for and asked a couple of times for. It really touched a chord with me last year,” another commented.

The companies said in the statement that more than 4,000 workers employed at the NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst medical center would be treated to roundtrip vacations to destinations throughout the U.S. and the Caribbean once they can “take time for themselves.”

Hyatt Hotels plans to provide accommodations once they arrive at no cost.

The companies said doctors, nurses, physician assistants, facility workers, and food service teams would be among those who qualify for the trips.

“We are extremely grateful to Hyatt and American Airlines for this generous gift to our health care workers, who have been at the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Israel Rocha, vice president of NYC Health + Hospitals and CEO of NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst, said.

“Our doctors, nurses, and other staff on the front lines of this unprecedented health care crisis really appreciate the outpouring of support,” he continued.

A couple from Buena Park, California, got a sweet surprise when they boarded a plane to bring their adopted baby home in November.

Dustin and Caren Moore tried to have a child of their own for nine years with no success, but when they met a baby girl in need of a family, they were beyond excited to become her parents, according to ABC 7.

“She had me wrapped around her fingers instantly. … I heard her crying outside the room and I started crying,” Dustin recalled.

Following the adoption, the couple boarded a Southwest Airlines flight from Colorado to California but had no idea they were about to receive a ton of support on such a big day.

February 9, Dustin shared the entire story on his Twitter page:

On the plane, the new parents had finally settled into their seats when the baby woke up and needed her diaper changed, so a kind flight attendant named Jenny made room for them in the back, according to Today.

“After a change, Jenny and another passenger complimented my beautiful daughter and politely asked what had prompted a flight with such a young infant,” Dustin wrote, adding “I gave them the shortened adoption story, to which they hastily offered congratulations, and shared a few more kind remarks.”

A few minutes after telling the story to another flight attendant named Bobby, he heard the intercom come on as Bobby announced that the infant was the flight’s special guest.

To the couple’s surprise, all of the passengers began to clap and cheer.

The flight attendants then passed out napkins for everyone to write down any parenting advice they had for the Moore family.

At the end of the trip, Dustin and his wife were presented with 60 napkins with notes that said things like “The hard parts don’t last forever! Congratulations!!”

Dustin shared a few more on his Twitter profile:

Now, the couple keeps the napkins in a scrapbook and said many of the notes have proved helpful since they brought their little girl home.

“All those worries and those fears that we had about, ‘Can we do this? Are people going to be good to our sweet daughter even though we adopted her?’ And everybody who just basically shouted ‘yes’ in unison to each other just made us feel so good, so, so good,” he commented.

“I can’t think of any better way we could have had to bring our daughter home,” Dustin concluded.
