Congratulations to Marc and Hillary Krawatsky of Boynton Beach, who welcomed their fourth child into the world at 12:28 a.m. on New Year’s Day. The Kawatsky’s daughter, Pearl, was delivered at Boca Raton Regional Hospital, becoming the first Palm Beach County baby born in 2011. Pearl, who weighed 5 pounds, 10 ounces, joins three brothers at home, ages 8, 6 and 2.
“We thank the wonderful staff [at Boca Regional] and Dr. Terrence Harris who were all so great to us,” says Marc Krawatsky. “Having a little girl after three boys is a wonderful gift to us. A father has no excuse in ever forgetting the date of her birthday.”
“The staff is excited to have been part of the birth of the county’s first baby of 2011,” says Karen Edlington, Director of Labor and Delivery at Boca Raton Regional Hospital. “We are delighted to join in the family’s celebration on the birth of their new baby girl.”
