New Year's baby at Rumford Hospital
Spencer Voter, the Rumford Hospital New Years Baby, is held by his proud mother, Jessica Voter, sitting beside the baby's father, Scott Voter. In front of the three is a basket, overflowing with clothes, toys and other baby necessities. The basket items were donated by the Birthing Center nurses and others who work at Rumford Hospital.
RUMFORD -- Jessica and Scott Voter of Mexico welcomed their third child and third son at 8:38 a.m. on January 2, 2013.
Spencer Voter thus became the Rumford Hospital New Year's Baby. "We hoped; but, seeing all the babies born here in December, we were a little worried if we'd make it," Jessica admits. On top of that, she began having contractions the day before New Years Eve. Spencer weighed in at 6 pounds 11 ounces and was 19 inches long.
He is truly a Rumford Hospital baby. His siblings, Blaine, 7, and Kaleb, 2, were also born at the hospital. Jessica's mother, Paula Voter, is the manager of the Dietary Department. Paula's mother, Yvonne Campbell, was a registered nurse at the hospital for 45 years. Campbell's mother was in charge of the bakery at Rumford Hospital. Indeed, the family boasts more than 70 years of service to the hospital.
"I grew up in this hospital," claims Jessica.
In addition to Paula Voter, the children's grandparents include Scott's parents, Colin and Kathy Voter of Peru and Paula's husband, Charlie, also of Mexico.
