EARLY CHRISTMAS PRESENT—It was extra special when Morgan Marie Collins was born on Dec. 10 at Scott & White Hospital in Temple. Her dad Corporal Cody Collins is currently home on emergency leave from his post with the United States Army’s 2nd Infantry Division at Camp Humphreys in South Korea. Mom Kristin Collins had a high-risk pregnancy with some severe complications and doctors wanted to induce her as soon as she hit the 37 weeks mark. With the help of the American Red Cross, Corp. Collins, who just left in October for a two year stint in South Korea (his second in the country) made it home just a couple of days before Morgan arrived. She weighed in at seven pounds and was 19 inches long. Corp. Collins, who has served in the Army for seven years with tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, was due to return to his post on Dec. 26. Morgan’s grandparents are Robert and Susie Urban of Rockdale, Thomas Jay Collins Jr. of Waycross, Georgia and Deborah Jay Collins of Folkston, Georgia.
