Guam - Just a few moments after Guamanians throughout the island rang in 2010, the first baby born on American soil was welcomed into the world.  Dr. Thomas Shieh delivered the beautiful little princess Jezariah Anjalique Fausto about twenty-five seconds after midnight at the Guam Memorial Hospital.

The very healthy girl was born to Bernadette Fausto and Joe Duenas, weighing 6 lbs./9 oz. and being 18" tall.  Shieh told KUAM News, "Mom was great!  Only one push and the baby was out."  The second and third babies, both boys, arrived at 1:45 and 2:09, respectively.
