Welcome Baby Hudson Biberaj



Val and I are extremely proud and excited to share that we welcomed our son Hudson into the world on Thursday, May 23rd at 11:51am. He came in at 9 pounds and 4 ounces! Mommy and baby are doing just great, and we could not be happier to start our family. 

When Val told me we were expecting, I could not fathom the sheer joy that comes with fatherhood. I'm sitting in the hospital room, cherishing each moment I spend with Hudson - holding him, counting his toes, and looking into his little face. I almost cannot believe it's real. This surely is love at first sight. 

We would like to thank everyone for the well wishes, for the advice, for the support, and for the overwhelming amount of love shown to us through these last nine months. 

We are truly blessed.

We hope everyone has a lovely Memorial Day Weekend! 


Ken and Val (and baby Hudson)
