Boy meets paramedic who helped deliver him in ambulance

The Herald Net

BOTHELL, Wash. — A while back, 5-year-old Nolawi Bruk asked his mother an important question. He knew his brother, 9-year-old Nabu, was born at EvergreenHealth Medical Center in Kirkland. What about himself, didn'­t he have a hospital?

Hosana Hailu told her youngest son that his story was a little more complicated. It started with a storm. On Jan. 11, 2011, the night he was born, more than two inches of snow had fallen on the ground. Hailu had a prenatal check-up that morning, and the doctor told her to come back in a week if she hadn't gone into labor.
