It's A Girl!
Susan Anne Catherine Torres entered the world at 8:18am on Tuesday, August 2, weighing in at 1 pound 13 ounces, and measuring 13.5 inches long. Born about 3 months before her original due date, the baby is doing fine and the delivery went well. This picture shows little Susan holding her Daddy's hand. I've been following this story and covered it on my blog in June. You see, little Susan's Mommy, Susan Torres, was stricken down with brain cancer and pronounced brain dead in May. At the father's request, she had remained on life support in hopes to bring their baby to a point where she could deliver. And that day came last Tuesday. It's bittersweet as Jason welcomed his newborn daughter on Tuesday, and said good-bye to his wife on Wednesday as she passed away not long after the birth. I plan to follow this baby's life as long as the media will cover it - I can't wait to see what God is going to do in the life of this miracle child.
