Mother's Day brings special gift for Milford mom

Mother's Day proved extra special for one Milford family.

The Richards family welcomed 7 pounds, 15 ounces of joy named Gavin Scott to the world Friday morning. Krista Richards says her newborn's arrival made for a special holiday.

"It was almost surreal having him on Mother's Day weekend," she says.

The boy's father is equally overwhelmed, describing the occasion as one of "pure joy." The whole family spent the holiday at Milford Hospital, where Krista says she still enjoyed the fruits of Mother's Day.

"My husband and son brought me breakfast this morning, and I really was waited on hand and foot today," she says. "It was quite nice, and I got my new baby."
