We are thrilled and grateful to welcome Val to the family! He was born on July 29, 2015 to Greg and Emily Yokas. Val is named after Greg's mother (my husband's first wife), Valerie Yokas, who lost her fight to breast cancer many years ago. I have no doubt, however, that she was there, by Greg's side as he welcomed his son into this world.
Mom and baby are doing fine.
What a joyous event! It doesn't get any better than this.
