Baby Born on 12/12/12 at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center
“Family Celebrates Baby Whose Birthday Will Be Easy to Remember”
SUFFERN, N.Y. (December 14, 2012) – A very special delivery arrived at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center on a special date. On Wednesday morning at 10:32 a.m., Kathleen and Bruce Leote of Nanuet, NY welcomed their 6 pound, 9 ounce daughter Lara Leote, who was born on the last day of this century when all three numerals in a date are the same.
The number 12 has a great significance in many cultures. In western tradition, it is commonly associated with completeness and seen as a perfect and harmonious unit. The day has certainly been perfect for the Leote family. Lara is the couple’s first child.
The Obstetrician during the delivery was Michele D’Angelo Batista, M.D., F.A.C.O.G. of Ramapo Valley OB/GYN.
