- A 10-year-old girl from California came up with an idea so she can finally hug her grandparents
- Paige made a ‘hug curtain’ made of shower curtain, disposable plastic plates, Ziploc bag, and hot glue
- Her mother, who is a frontliner, was amazed by the idea
Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, the family of 10-year-old Paige who lives in California started practicing strict physical distancing measures, which means they cannot even hug members of their family.
But her ingenuity led her to come up with a “hug curtain” so they can finally hug one another.
Lindsay Okray, Paige’s mom, is a frontliner working as a nurse in a community hospital so when she heard about her daughter’s idea, she was delighted and was very eager to help.
Kmox Radio said Paige worked hard for hours she can accomplish the hug curtain made of shower curtain, disposable plastic plates, Ziploc bag, and hot glue.
“Paige saw a video of someone who made this type of ‘blanket’ to hug their family. She put together a list and she designed it so she could hug Nana and Papa,” Lindsay said. “This girl is so freaking amazing and we are so happy to be able to hug them.”
This is not the first time that family members came up with ways just so they could hug their loved ones amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
A photographer in Cincinatti captured an emotional moment when a mother decided to grab a cloth from the laundry basket because she has been aching to hug her daughter working as an ICU nurse.
“I see on social media that all these healthcare workers are feeling very isolated and I did not want that to happen to her. I thought I want to hug her and if she has a sheet around her, maybe I can do it,” the mother said.
