SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — A baby born at the Bellevue Women’s Center in Schenectady has the honor of being named the first baby born in 2017 in the Capital Region.
Amanah Santos, daughter of Maryam Ally-Santos and Richard Santos of Cohoes was born at 12:01 a.m. on January 1, 2017.
Amanah weighed 8 pounds and was 18 inches long.
“It’s awesome, something we’re going to celebrate every year,” said Amanah’s father Richard. “It’s a cool story for her, you know?”
Translated, the baby’s name “Amanah” means “trust.” Her parents say they named her that to remind themselves of the trust that is being placed in them now that they have a new baby.
