The The California family of 10,are doing well. The six boys and two girls –– ranging in weight from 1 pound 8 ounces to 3 pounds 4 ounces — were generally doing well in incubators following their Caesarean-section delivery at Kaiser Permanente hospital in Bellflower, California, doctors said.
The hospital said the mom didn’t want her personal information released to the news media, and it would not answer questions about whether she’d had fertility treatments.
Preliminary research indicates this is the second set of live-born octuplets in the United States, according to the hospital
When a Utah mom gave up her son more than 30 years ago she thought she’d never see him again. But the two found each other last week thanks to a social-networking site and a typo.
Thirty-two years ago Terri Fuller put her 2-year-old son up for adoption. “I was young and barely surviving,” she said. “I felt he needed a family.”
When she created a profile on MySpace with a note saying she wanted to meet her son she got a response.
“I got on the computer. There was this message. It says, ‘Hi, I’m Rustin Hawver, H-A-W-V-E-R. I think I’m the one you’re looking for that you want to meet. Please let me know if I’m wrong.’ Because I had it spelled as H-A-V-E-R.”
Her son, who lived hundreds of miles away, actually stumbled upon her page because of a typo. He missed the “W” in his last name while searching for his blog.
“She had my name misspelled. If it wasn’t for Google or that keyboard being messed up, I would have never have found that,” Hawver said.
Hawver, now an adult, couldn’t be happier. “It has set my mind at ease, lifted a weight off my heart and allowed me to breathe knowing bits and pieces of who I am is now finally there,” he said.
In Boston…They found the missing Superbowl rings.
Authorities said they have found 27 New York Giants Super Bowl rings — valued at $172,000 — allegedly stolen last June from a Massachusetts jewelry company.
Police said investigators found the rings Tuesday in a bank safe deposit box in Saugus. Authorities said the rings are the original rings slated to be sent to the New York Giants team members, including quarterback Eli Manning.
