Right Time, Right Place, a Special Connection
October 2022 | Our Child Life Zone studio at Cook Children's Medical Center provides magical moments for patients every day. Here, children have the opportunity to create their own music and videos. Employees like Raymond Turner encourage patients and siblings to find an artistic outlet to express their feelings while healing.
Little did Turner know that he would have his own moment of magic in 2022 at the studio with his long-lost sister, Christina. They went through life without knowing each other existed – and over the course of seven years, they walked past each other at Cook Children's many times.
Thankfully, a DNA test helped bring them together and allowed them to meet for the first time.
"There are no accidents in this world," Raymond said. "I hope that if people realize anything through this, it's that there are moments in our lives that we consider to be serendipitous. When you put all of these things together, when we recount all of this, there's no way we could have planned this. This was a divine appointment. This was on God's timetable and it was at the right moment."
