Birth of NyAzjha Nakya Barbee (ck), shortly after birth on 1/22/2002 at Hurley Medical Center in Flint. Mother Lashaa Abron (ck) gave birth shortly after 5 pm to the 5lb, 15 oz baby. In a previous pregnancy that resulted in a premature birth of son Darrius, Lashaacq Abron, 21, says she hardly ever went to prenatal visits. The boy, who was born at only 22 weeks, died soon after delivery due to an infection during pregnancy. 'Because I didn't go there was no way to know something was wrong,' said Abron, who often has trouble finding a ride to the office.

Father Herbert Barbee (ck) was there . All are of Flint.
