“I’m very excited. I can’t wait to take her home and introduce her to her two-year-old sister. I’m looking forward to the pandemic getting better in 2021 and things getting back to normal,” said McMorris. 

“Being pregnant during the pandemic was stressful, since pregnant women are more at risk of the COVID-19 virus. There were unexpected stressors. I followed all of the pandemic guidelines to stay healthy and luckily avoided COVID-19. I’m looking forward to getting the COVID-19 vaccine,” she added.
