"I Love Joseph," Jamie Lynn Placanica, 10th Grade, South Richmond High School

When my sister told me that she was pregnant I was both happy and sad. 
I was upset for a little while but after I got over it I started to love Joseph. 
I loved him even before he was born. 
On November 18, 2007 at 11:04 p.m. the newest edition to my family was born. 
His name was Joseph Anthony Guttierez and he weighed 8lbs. 7oz. 
When I saw him for the very first time I cried because I couldn’t believe that I finally got to hold and see my nephew.  Joseph is about to be 5 months old and he is the most awesome baby and I LOVE him with all my heart!!!
