SPOTLIGHT 2: The Gerwer Quads

holiday 01

Who They Are: Casey and Robbie Gerwer were married in 2003. In August of 2007 they discovered their family was about to get bigger...

However, she and Robbie have learned to juggle (no pun intended) their professional lives with the raising of their quads. Their Website: The Gerwer Quads Designed For Continue Reading
