New Baby

Congratulations to TLC’s newest parents upon the birth of their 7 pound, 13 ounce son – the latest addition to our recovery family.

While the parents are unnamed for anonymity’s sake, those who know them share their happiness at the arrival of a healthy child.

They both viewed the pregnancy as one of the blessings of living clean and sober.  And they’ve talked of their gratitude at having a second chance and being able to have a child together.

The new parents met a few years ago while both were clients of TLC, began dating, and eventually made a commitment.

We're all happy for you guys and wish you well as you embark on this new venture.
