Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - Political News - By Tom O’brien

Federal Mem­ber for Berowra Ju­lian Leeser MP and his wife Joanna are over­joyed to an­nounce the birth of James Sa­muel John Leeser, born on 14 April at 9.48am and weigh­ing in at 2.31 kg.

As a smaller baby, James spent a few days be­ing cared for by the in­cred­i­ble nurses and mid­wives of the special care nurs­ery at Syd­ney Ad­ven­tist Hospi­tal in Wahroonga. James is now at home and both he and his proud par­ents are do­ing well.

Ju­lian Leeser MP has thanked his Berowra elec­torate for the many well wishes he and Joanna have re­ceived.

“Be­fore James was born – peo­ple told me how much love I would feel for him. But noth­ing prop­erly pre­pares you for that ex­pe­ri­ence. I look into his eyes and see my fa­ther and grand­fa­ther and feel an over­whelm­ing sense of joy and re­spon­si­bil­ity,” Mr Leeser said.

“Sup­port­ing Joanna has given me a whole new ap­pre­ci­a­tion for what new moth­ers go through and an ad­mi­ra­tion for their in­ner re­serves of en­ergy, strength and love.”
