Mother’s Brunch

Thanks to all who helped put on special event

Brunch celebrates moms of children with special needs

The sky was gray on a May 10 afternoon, but inside Swedish/Issaquah, where a special group of moms were treated to an early Mother’s Day brunch, it was nothing but sunshine.

Look no further than Issaquah mom Kimberley Lane’s Mother’s Day card, signed lovingly by her son Brian Galbraith with the inscription “your only son-shine.”
