Jennifer Powers of Bealeton and Jason Kerns of Warrenton welcomed 7 lbs, 7 ounce Mason Lee Kerns into the world at 10:59 p.m. on January 3. Tiny Mason was the first baby to be born at Fauquier Hospital in 2012. Dr. Lorraine Chun of Fauquier Health OB/GYN was the attending physician.
Jennifer said that at first she was surprised that Mason had such a peaceful, quiet delivery. "I asked, 'why isn't he crying?' But there was nothing to worry about. He was looking around, doing just fine."
Fauquier Health gives a $50 savings bond to the first baby born at the hospital every year, to celebrate their timely arrival.
