Welcome to Send Claire!!
On April 20, 2009 Claire Renee Cox was born to Michelle and Richard Cox from Knoxville, TN...a long awaited gift.
Michelle Pittman Cox is the daughter of the late Sandra Middleton and Charles and Kathy Pittman of Raymond, MS, yet recently relocated to Sharps Chapel , TN to assist with the care of their grandchildren. Michelle is the granddaughter of Dr. WE Middleton and the late Clara Middleton of Cleveland, MS and Louise Pittman and the late Tim Pittman of Springfield, TN (formerly of Clarksdale, MS).
Michelle grew up in Cleveland, MS later moving to Southaven, MS. She graduated from Southaven High School and Delta State University with a major in Biology/Chemistry and minor in Psychology. She later graduated from Washington University School of Medicine in St Louis, MO with a Master's in Occupational Therapy. Michelle has spent the last 10 years providing OT services in home care, nursing home facilities and pediatric settings. She is currently employed through Knox County School System serving AL Lotts and West Valley Middle School...and of course at home with a special patient.
Richard is the son of Mike and Cheryl Winters of Athens, TN. He is the grandson of the late Ron and Bonnie Price of Sumter, SC (formerly of Athens, TN) and Evelyn and the late Arthur Winters of Indianola, MS.
Richard grew up in Greenville, MS and attended Greenville Christian School. Richard graduated from Delta State University with a degree in Business.
On November 26, 2010, after a high risk pregnancy, Claire welcomed a healthy baby sister, Amy Kathryn. Amy also carries the blood clotting disorders but did not suffer a stroke from them and we are keeping a close eye on her. Claire and Amy are in the toddler years displaying appropriate sibling rivalry...we are hoping they will be best of friends!
