Baby finalist in beach contest

January 24, 2011

Ava Anderson is a miracle baby.

That's what her parents, Alicia and Matt, will tell you.

Alicia, 28, and Matt, 31, both of Lincolnton, unsuccessfully tried to become parents for two years before Ava was born in September 2009.

Ava, now 16 months old, is one of eight children who are finalists to appear on the cover of the 2011 Beach Times magazine.
