At birth, the doctor would have cried several times: “Oh, my God, I have a 9/11, 9/11, 9/11.”

Christina’s mother, Cametrione Malone-Brown, said her granddaughter was able to offer a positive moment during a day overshadowed by the 2001 terrorist attacks on the New York World Trade Center and the Pentagon in Washington, DC than in Pennsylvania.

Ms. Malone-Brown said, “We had emotions and we felt them.

“Then, 18 years later, on September 11, you regain your triumph, you find a piece of joy of a day so dramatic and always painful.”
