TORRANCE, Calif. -- For parents at the Torrance Memorial Medical Center this holiday season is extra special.
These parents are taking home the gift of life.
Keeping with long-standing tradition, newborns are being sent home wrapped in a festive stocking.
The tradition is for all babies born at the hospital in December.
Volunteers handmade all the stockings.
It's a practice spanning more than 30 years.
Torrance Memorial opened its renovated Pat and Ellen Theodora Pediatric/Young Adult Pavilion in October.
The new facility includes a new mother baby unit.
The hospital says the rooms are 25 percent larger.
Not that these little bundles of joy need that much room.
