Gena Williams, who had miscarried twice, lifted the "beautiful, brown-eyed baby," at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. The infant rested its head on her shoulder.
As much as Williams, of Greenwich, desired a child, the baby in her arms desperately needed a family. Her biological parents, due perhaps to economic hardships, could not care for her.
The infant, named Lauren, had been approved for adoption by the Williams' and just arrived at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport from Guatemala. She was ready to start a new life the only one she would ever know as the newly adopted daughter of Williams and her husband, Joe.
