The first baby of 2013 born at Good Samaritan Hospital is from Lindenhurst.
Melissa and Gerard Drescher welcomed Gerard Drescher, Jr., to their family at 6:19 a.m. on New Year’s Day. Gerard is the couple’s second baby, joining 20-month old sister, Adeline.
“What an amazing miracle to bring a child into the world on New Year’s Day, the first day of a year full of possibilities,” said Melissa Drescher. “My husband and I feel truly blessed.”
In honor of little Gerard’s arrival, the West Islip-based hospital presented the Dreschers with a gift basket donated by Babies ‘R Us.
The delivering physician was Maria Lockhart, MD.
