We all hope that 2017 will bring many laughs, memories, and amazing moments in our lives. But within the first few hours of the new year four different families welcomed their bundles of pride and joy into this wonderful world. Tiny little tots were welcomed by some local hospitals we all know and love on the Eastern Shore.
