“Theyve become a familiar scene at Yelm.
Theres grandma, Donna Harrison, sitting on her folding chair, cheering at a Yelm High School tennis match, soccer game or cross-country meet. Theres also mom, Deanna Harrison, cheering.
And, of course, there are the four Harrisons, the quadruplets with game. Cierra plays soccer. Mason runs cross country. Hunter and Cole play tennis.”
“Theyre the miracle babies. Premature, they weighed one to two pounds at birth. They were born at 27 weeks, not enough time to fully develop. Deannas doctor asked her not to announce her childrens birth because they were so small and he wasnt sure theyd survive.
But, now, 15 years later, theyre all healthy, living up to the name of being a Harrison,” by Gail Wood in Thurston Talk.
