Former Congressman Patrick Kennedy and his wife Amy introduced their new baby girl Nora Kara Kennedy. Baby Nora Kara was born this past Tuesday, weighing 6 pounds 11 ounces and measuring 18 1/4  inches long at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center’s Mainland Campus.

Nora’s birth came just days before the 50th anniversary of the assassination of her great uncle, President John F. Kennedy. According to Patrick Kennedy " The week has been bittersweet, but Nora’s birth is a celebration of new life".  President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas 50 years ago today.

The Kennedys also thanked the doctors, nurses and staff of AtlantiCare and everyone who has sent good wishes. Congratulations to the proud parents!
