About this Article

Monica Bakos didn't envision her newborn daughter's first receiving blanket would be a police officer's winter coat. Several things, it turns out, didn't go according to plan that bitterly cold night on Jan. 23, 2000, when the Carol Stream woman was forced to give birth in her two-door Chevy Cavalier with the assistance of Hanover Park police officer George Sullivan. Mom, daughter and Sullivan reunited at the scene Wednesday morning to commemorate Brianna Elizondo's unusual introduction to the world.
