Aledo Times Record

Karin and Sean Paulsen of South Lyon, Michigan are proud to announce the birth of their son, Jens Linden Paulsen. Jens was born on July 13, 2010 at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ypsilanti, Michigan. He weighed 6 lbs. and 10 oz. and was 20" long.  Jens was welcomed by big sisters Jenna and Linnea, as well as paternal grandparents Gerald and Iris Paulsen of Aledo and maternal grandparents Rik and Ginger Haugen of Chelsea, Michigan.

"Jens," which is a Danish variant of John, is named after his great-great-great grandfather Jens Paulsen, who immigrated to the United States in 1871. "Linden" is a family name from his mother's family and also a type of tree known for long life. Our families pray that Jens will be "like a tree planted by streams of water, yielding its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither." Psalm 1:3
