Frank Toyota is now proudly Dalton Toyota National City. Their legacy of generosity continues as a sponsor of our South Bay Diaper Distributions. There is a personal connection for Dalton Motors Marketing Director Monica Salem, as she knows firsthand the fear and uncertainties parents with hospitalized babies experience. In honor of CHD Awareness, we are recognizing Monica's daughter, Izzy. Click on her picture to above and read her story. 
Yen believes we all have reasons for doing what we are passionate about. "What I like about photography is that they capture a moment that is gone forever, impossible to reproduce." This quote by Karl Lagerfeld beautifully describes her 'why' for waking up every single day to do what she loves and is passionate about. Thank you Yen for donating your time and talent to our 2023 baby calendar.
Meet Miracle Baby Daniela! Baby Daniela was born on 8/6/22 at just 24 weeks weighing a tiny 1 pound and 11 ounces. We met Daniela's mom, Eva the day she was discharged from the hospital. Eva immediately began utilizing our free transportation service to be with her baby daily. Over the past five months, we have had fascinating and fun shuttle conversations and have celebrated holidays, birthdays, and special events with Eva. We are happy to share that after 166 days Daniela was discharged home in late January.
