Finding Christmas: Triplets' Birth Reaffirms Spirit Of The Season

After Losing Three Sons, Family Gives Up On Christmas Until Miracle Finds Them.

Somewhere along the way, Chris and Susan Spiegel, of Eagle, Colo. said they lost the spirit of Christmas.

"We actually kind of avoided Christmas music or even commercials that had anything to do with Christmas," said Chris Spiegel.

Who could blame them?
Their child "Scotty"died of SIDS when he was two months and 25 days old.

Years later, a second son died.

"(Skylar) was 16 years old. He died on his way to homecoming in a car accident in Vail," said Susan Spiegel.

Shortly after, tragedy knocked at their door a third time and took the only son the pair had left.

"CJ was hit by a car three years ago. He was 7," said Susan Spiegel.

It's enough to make anyone give up on Christmas, parenting and life.

"Every morning I'd get get up to go to work and I didn't know why I was doing it," said Chris Spiegel.

The only thing this pair said they knew how to do was parent. So they decided to try it again.

Susan couldn't have kids because of a procedure done years ago so she solicited the help of a gestational surrogate, and a funny thing happened.

The surrogate found out she was pregnant with not one but three babies.

"When they told us we were having three I just knew it was the boys that gave us this blessing,"said Susan Spiegel.

Coming weeks early, the three were born at Swedish Medical Center in Englewood, Colo. They arrived just in time for, of all days, Christmas Eve.

"This morning they turned Christmas music on and Susan said I don't mind listening to Christmas music now," said Chris Spiegel.

Despite the tiny miracles, the pair can't help but look over their shoulder, worried the dark clouds will return.

"With these blessings I hope that it's over. I hope our bad luck has changed and we're going to have this miracle for the rest of our lives," said Susan Spiegel.

In her boys' absence, the memory of the three remain. Each newborn has their brother's first names as their middle names.

Born Dec. 24, 2007 they are: Cayden Scott Spiegel, 7:32 a.m.; Shelby Sky Spiegel, 7:34 a.m.; Billy CJ Spiegel, 7:37 a.m.
