Under the Ocean, Red Cross Connects a New Dad to his Family!

Katie and Madilynn

Spencer with his new baby girl - Madilynn

Everything had been arranged for Madilynn’s due date. Dad had planned a leave so he could be there with Katie for the birth. But little baby Madilynn decided to come and see the world – 6 weeks early! Her Dad was in a nuclear sub underneath the Atlantic Ocean. The Red Cross got the word to Spencer to tell him he was a Dad!  The Red Cross provides Emergency Communication to keep families connected when they need it most – it’s a part of our Service to Armed Forces. Spencer got to meet Madilynn about a week later and baby, Mom and Dad are doing well!

I am proud to work for an organization that helped my niece and her husband connect on a very happy occasion!
