It’s a girl! Jadexy Runnels and Cody Hicks are the proud parents of a daughter, Leila Jane Hicks, the first baby born in St. Francois County in 2020. Leila was born at Parkland Health Center in Farmington on January 1, 2020 at 1:36 p.m., weighing 6 pounds 7 ounces and 18 inches long. Dr. Kim Borchers was the delivering physician. Leila will make her home in Bismarck, MO with her parents.
As first baby, her parents were treated to a gift basket complete with a diaper bag, car seat cover, bath essentials, toys, books, blankets, and much more, compliments of the four BJC organizations in St. Francois County: Parkland Health Center, BJC Medical Group, BJC Home Care, and BJC Behavioral Health. Selena Earnest, RN, presented the gift basket to Leila and her parents. “Leila is such a beautiful little girl,” said Earnest. “We are happy to treat her and her family with some gifts to help them get started.”
