The Sheriff family is proud to introduce a new member to the family. He is Sheku Kemo Sheriff, born to Maria Philips and Sheku Sheriff in Minneapolis, Minnesota on Thusday 23rd October 2008 at 10.00pm.
The baby weighed a whopping 10.2 pounds at birth, with the appropriate number of fingers and toes. We intend to raise the boy to be proud of his American citizenship, while remaining acutely aware, proud and respectful of his Sierra Leone heritage. The baby's paternal ancestors are the Sheriffs, Kallons, and Kannehs. The Maternal ancestors are the Kemokai and Margai families of Sierra Leone, and the Philips family of Liberia.
Calls of congratulations have been pouring in from friends and relatives all over the world and we pray that Sheku will grow to be a man of integrity, who will make a meaningful contribution in the lives of others.
