  • 12. S TO R K S TO R Y S A M P LE Stork Story: Jessica Voll Jessica was born on her due date and everything went smoothly throughout the pregnancy until her delivery. Being our first child, we weren’t certain what to expect in the delivery room and when they whisked her away to ‘pink her up,’ we didn’t think anything of it. We didn’t even get to hold her before they took her away, but we figured it was what happened to all babies! It wasn’t until later we found out she needed oxygen right away. We realize that we have been very blessed that she and her sister have both been healthy babies. Here’s to Jessica! --We love you! Mom and Dad
