Samantha Kate Picacio

Samantha Kate Picacio was born July 5, 2010 at 2:57pm to her proud parents, John and Traci Picacio. Mother and child are both doing well.

This is the first child for Traci and me. Samantha drove the express train into this rough-and-tumble world and arrived earlier than expected. We couldn't be prouder of her and her fighting spirit. She's truly a Picacio, and my wife is a hero for her toughness and fortitude all along. We're all doing fine and I hope I can give both of them the very best this life can offer.

Kudos to you and your family John! Samantha is a beautiful name-one of my all time favs. Don't know if you are aware that it means "Listener" and dates back to biblical times. So very happy for you and Traci!

Congrats. There is nothing more wondrous in the world than holding your newborn...not even your art, John.
