WADENA, Minn. - A Wadena mother is celebrating a rare gift...identical triplets. Stephanie Johnston gave birth to Abby, Ellie and Taya in late July, which was a month and a half early.
They were cared for at St. Cloud Hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and all three should be able to go home on Wednesday, Sept. 19.
As you can imagine, the triplets will need a lot of food, diapers and baby supplies. The family says the community has been very generous already and they are thankful for their help.
A fund has been set up for the family at the Wadena Federal Credit Union. The account name is Hovius Triplets, attention Deanna Hall, P.O. Box 307, Wadena, MN, 56482.
