16 October 2009 6 Comments

Please, join site founder Kristen Palana and Michael Hemling in welcoming their new baby boy  into the world.

“Our son, Lukas Michael Hemling was born on Saturday, Oct. 10 at 9:10 AM (Rome time.)  He weighed 6.2 pounds (2.8kg) and is 18 inches long. He is by far our favorite German/American baby born in Italy and he is doing extremely well in his new home.  Michael and I are sleepy but euphoric.”

Congratulations to Kristen and Michael on their new bundle of joy!

    Congratulations, Kristen and Michael. Your baby is beautiful!

  • Kristen said:

    Thank You! Today he is two weeks old and getting cuter/more grown up by the day. 🙂 Looking forward to when he is old enough to sponsor a child of the same age at Children International with me. I think they start the program at age three, correct?
