Lea’s surprise Skype session at Arcare North Lakes

Client Lea at Arcare North Lakes had a lovely surprise last Thursday afternoon when her grandson snuck in a Skype session and showed Lea her beautiful 6-week-old great grandbaby Hilda via video call.

Lea stated that it was such a surprise and that even though she was seeing her first great grandchild for the first time through video call, it was still the next best thing to the real thing.

Lea had known that ever since he was a young boy, her grandson always wanted to be a father.

‘She’s a gorgeous dear little thing!’ Lea exclaimed. ‘Your first great grandchild has put on half a kilo since she was born,’ Lea’s grandson, Nelson shared in the Skype call.

Lea is definitely over the moon with the new addition to her family.

As the Skype call came to a close, Lea said to Nelson, ‘give little Hilda a big hug for me!’

Lea is glad to have seen her first great grandchild. Now, she looks forward to the day when she can see and hold baby Hilda in person.
