On January 1, 2017 at 1:03pm, USC Verdugo Hills Hospital welcomed its very first baby of the new year. Adoptive parents Felipe Osorno and Ian Holloway, as well as older sister Sophia H. Osorno, are thrilled to welcome baby Lucia into their family. Baby Lucia weighed 7 pounds and 7 ounces.

Lucia was greeted with a welcome basket of helpful gifts generously donated by members of the Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce, including free house cleaning from J’s maids, a family photo shoot from Jennifer Emery Photography and car seat accessories from Diono Baby Bundle.

In anticipation of the hospital’s first New Year baby, USC-VHH hosted a contest on Facebook to guess the baby’s weight and time of birth. Torie Christine O’Keeffe won a $100 gift card, courtesy of Los Gringos Locos, for the closest guess to the time of birth. John Kruse received a $100 gift card to the Albertson’s in Tujunga for guessing the baby’s weight.
