Baby Oscar is the couple’s second child. They also have a 6-year-old son, who has waited eagerly for the arrival of a sibling, the couple said. As Oscar nursed contentedly in his mother’s arms, his father said they are optimistic about their baby’s future. “We want the best,” he said, “a very good future.”

More than 4,400 babies are born at JPS every year.
