Bundles of Joy Bring Hope for ‘21

After all the bad news from 2020, it was refreshing to see 2021 start off on a positive note with the announcement of four New Year’s Day births at area hospitals.

The first baby of the New Year arrived to Andrea and Cody Graham of Wheeling, who welcomed Emmett Wayne Graham at 12:56 a.m.

At 2:01 a.m., Holly and Matthew Yevincy of Wheeling welcomed Ripley June Yevincy. Her birth was followed by two more later in the day.

Being a parent is a life-altering event, made even more so by the challenging times we live in. We wish all the best to those families that welcomed new members.
