Villarreals welcome daughter

Gil and Marcia Villarreal of Marble are excited to announce the arrival of Emma Rose Villarreal. Emma was born at 6:45 a.m. June 3, 2013, by way of a beautiful, home water birth. She was 7 pounds, 14 ounces, and was 19 inches long, very healthy and super cute. Emma’s proud big brothers are Ethan, 5, Lucas, 8, and Nicholas, 19. Emma is named after her great-great grandma Emma Reib, and her great-grandma Dorothy Rose.

Proud grandparents are Henry and Eva Villarreal of Marble, Linda Cerise of New Castle, and the late John Cerise. Great-grandparents are Eunice Jones of Pasadena, Calif., Dorothy Sos of Silt, and Grandpa Joe Sos who just missed meeting her as he passed away in March.

Gil and Marcia would like to extend a heart-felt thank-you to our midwife, Julianne Guy, of Full Circle Midwifery Care, for being with us on this journey and for all of her support, encouragement and help in making our home birth such a memorable experience for all of us. We also wish to send a special thank-you to Kelly Sarno of Digital Dimensions Photography for giving us breathtaking and emotional photographs of our daughter’s entrance into this world!
