Meredith and James Wood had their first child Wednesday, which also happened to be the area’s first baby born in the new year, but already the new father is looking ahead.
James said he wants to have a total of seven children to represent the seven generations of Alaska Native heritage he and his wife Meredith Lysette Wood share.
“Well, one child at a time,” Meredith said with a smile. “I need to get through this one first, but yes, eventually. We want a big family.”
