Yvette and I want to say thank you to everyone who has been asking over the weekend, and everyone that’s been with us all of the way. What a fantastic place to live and raise a family, and we are so blessed to have to some many wonderful people here in our life!

We’ll post more as we catch our breath!


  1. I hope you include us in the “aunt colony.” We are thrilled that the whole process was so easy for Yvette. Love, Ann and Evelynn

  2. Yea! Baby Stafford is born and officially a “local” We can’t wait to see Adam in his cool overalls and sitting on a tractor

  3. Way to go Yvette & Tommy! Looks like Adam is a big guy.
    Congrats and best wishes from the coast of Maine.
    Henri & Elaine

    Enjoy the moment. Every day will be something new!

  5. A definite “Top Story” for 2008!! Great name! My Adam told me to say that, but I think it’s a great one too! I’m sure TV news will be off limits for yet another Adam! And now you two, get ready for the biggest, but without a doubt, the best assignment of your lives! You both deserve it. Congratulations!!

  6. He is adorable. I knew he would be. Looking forward to holding me and watching him grow. Give him a kiss from Aunt Milly. I’m so happy for you guys.

  7. Welcome little Adam! He is a very blessed little boy to have such great parents. Hope that you all enjoy every single day of this great adventure!

  13. We SAW the flag coming back from church, and wondered if that was the news! How wonderful for the two of you. The GREAT years are on the way for the two of you. Please bring him to play in the woods behind the cabin. Little boys should dig holes and build ‘forts’ instead of sitting in front of computers like you and me.

  14. Congatulations to good friends!! No medicine is more valuable, none more efficacious than friends with whom we may share our happiness in time of joy. Lee and I are so very happy for you both and of course for Adam Thomas who completed the 9 month the journey safely:)

  36. Tommy…
    Congratulations to you, Yvette and the “Littlest Stafford.” You will be wonderful parents. You seem to have found true happiness with your move to Virginia. Its been a long time since we’ve seen each other when we both worked for Channel 3. I’ve tried to keep a very low profile since my retirement for a lot of reasons but just couldn’t resist sending my best wishes to you and your family.

  37. Wow, Jerry!
    So nice to hear from you as well. It’s been a lot of years since the good old days of television news. You were one of the best to work with, I look back on those days fondly. Thanks for the best wishes to us! And best back to you back in Tennessee!
