As Rebecca and Derrick Kimball and their three children prepare to celebrate Christmas, they are focusing on the little things found in life that money can’t buy.

“Christmas is about family and Jesus,” begins Rebecca, emphasizing that while she and her husband have survived many challenges during the past few years and continue to overcome, they are blessed to enjoy the love and support of each other and the affection of their children, Kieleanne, 7, Kaidyn, 5 and Kennadee, 4.

Derrick, a self-employed day laborer, begins work at 6:30 a.m. and gets home in late afternoon to help Rebecca with the children and daily chores.

According to the couple, life has been difficult since Kennadee was born three months prematurely in October 2013 at home in the shower. The mother and infant were rushed to St. Luke’s Hospital and transported to Woman and Infants Hospital in Providence, where the baby fought for her life and remained there for 179 days.
