Donna Harvel Balo, CNM and proud parents Seth & Danielle Balo welcomed their second baby, Adalynn Grace, 8 lb 9 oz, born on her due date, 03/31/20, which would have been the 100th birthday of Great Grandma Barbara Geach Balo. Because of the hospital restrictions during the Coronavirus pandemic, this was the first grandchild Donna wasn’t able to deliver and sadly she wasn’t even able to be in attendance. However, the family was delighted and thankful that Mary Foster Kennedy, CNM, with her warmth, kindness, and compassion, and her loving and skilled hands, was the first that touched our sweet baby. We are blessed and forever grateful!
