Dan & Vanessa Rubin’s twins were born!

March 26th, 2012 by

Dear Sangha Community,

It is a pleasure to let you know that Vanessa and Dan Rubin welcomed two beautiful new warriors, their newborn twins, born on Tuesday March 20th, the spring equinox.  Charles Clinton was born at 1:48 PM and weighed in at 5 lbs. 6 oz.  Ella Joan was born at 1:49 PM weighing 4 lbs. 10 oz.  The twins were born a week earlier than expected.

Mother and children are home from the hospital.  At present Dan and Vanessa do not know what kind of help they might need.  When they need help, they will let the community know.  At present if you would like to contact the new family, they would prefer via email rather than phone.

All joy and goodwill to our newest warriors and their parents and grandparents.

Ann Cason and Jay Stewart
