The New Year springs new life. On January 15th, 2015, Okayama Prefecture witnessed another exceptional miracle! After months of anticipation, local CIR Kayne Brookes and wife Taeeun Kim Brookes welcomed a healthy new baby girl into the world! Weighing a healthy 3502 grams, Luli Kafka Brookes has taken her first breath, witnessed her first snowfall, and will see her first brush with Valentine’s Day—all in her first month on earth. Congratulations to Kayne, Taeeun, and Luli Kafka from all of us at Connect!
