The Reporter family welcomes Baby Emily

Emily Derjue Dumcius, the daughter of Amy Derjue, social and digital media manager for EMD Serono, and Gin Dumcius, managing editor of the Dorchester Reporter, was born in Weymouth’s South Shore Hospital at 1:11 a.m. on Dec. 19, weighing in at 7 pounds and 15 ounces.

Emily and Mom are doing well, while Dad is a nervous wreck who in the first 24 hours of parenthood dropped his cell phone while trying to send baby photos to his mother and in so doing accidentally called an elected official.

“Emily joins us after a grueling five-year battle with infertility,” Amy said. “All babies are miracles, but Emily especially so. If you’re going through your own fertility struggles, our door is open if you want to talk.”

She added: “We’re so grateful to the friends and family who’ve supported us throughout our journey to become parents.”
