First Carbondale Christmas Baby "Meracle"
CARBONDALE -- The first Christmas baby born in Carbondale is nothing short of a miracle. That's Meracle with an "e" of course.
Kinsley Ann Meracle of Cape Girardeau, Missouri was born at 7:14 a.m. Wednesday morning at Carbondale Memorial Hospital.
Her parents, Meghan Mitchell and Michael Meracle, were on their way to visit family in Herrin when Kinsley decided to make an appearance. She arrived two weeks earlier than expected.
"I didn't expect it to happen today to be honest with you," said Mitchell. "But I mean, it's cool that her last name's Meracle and its happened on Christmas."
Kinsley had some trouble breathing at first but she and mom are doing just fine.
