The Longest Shortest Time

EPISODE #20: I’ve Got News 5

Ellen and Tim’s baby is here!



We began the I’ve Got News series two years ago with Ellen’s father Tom telling us about Ellen’s birth—the result of an unplanned pregnancy. We conclude the series, as well as Season 1 of LST, with Ellen’s baby’s birth—also the result of an unplanned pregnancy. Find out how the new family is doing, and about the project Ellen’s dad took on as a coping mechanism. Hint at left.

Thank you to Ellen and Tom and their families for being so open with me over the last couple of years. If their story has resonated with you, please consider leaving a comment on this post. I know they would love to hear from you.
