The family spent hours making the idea reality before capturing the joyful moment when they were able to hug each other.
"She came up with the idea, she laid it out in the family room and spent multiple hours working on it,'" Okray said.
Okray admitted she was excited to use the curtain as she works in a local Covid-19 ward and hadn't been allowed to hug her friends and family.
She wrote on Facebook: "Paige saw a video of someone who made this type of 'blanket' to hug their family.
"She put together a list and she designed it so she could hug nana and papa ... this girl is so freaking amazing and we were so happy to be able to hug them!"
