Tacoma Port Director Tim Farrell and his wife, Jessyn, happily announced a special delivery on the first of May.

Emaline Muriel Farrell, their first child, entered the world safe and sound.

From the Farrells:

Dear Family and Friends,

We are delighted to introduce you to our daughter Emaline Muriel Farrell.

Her name is pronounced “EM-align”, a name we discovered and love. Muriel is Tim’s late Mom’s name.

Emaline was born at 7:19 p.m. on May 1, 2008, weighing 7 pounds and measuring 20 inches long. Everyone is happy and healthy.

Thank you for all of your expressions of love and support. We’ll send another note with pictures very soon!

With Love and Affection,

The Mommy and Daddy formerly known as

Jessyn and Tim

Jessyn Farrell is on leave from her job as director of Transportation Choices, a pro-transit advocacy group. For some reason, neither parent thought naming the baby “Freight Mobility Farrell” was a good idea.
