Local Couple Celebrates ‘miracle child’


After losing both children to an under-the-influence driver in October 2003, Carmen Pack was devastated. The immense pain, trauma and loss she endured was overwhelming, but above all, she wanted to become a mother again.

“After everything that happened to me, I realized how fragile life is and how much I enjoyed being around children,” the Danville resident and preschool teacher said.

The Packs will be among nearly 1000 families celebrating the success of new beginnings and their “miracle children” at Reproductive Science Center’s family day in San Ramon.
