HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – For everyone who has been inquiring about where Melissa Riopka is – we have your answer.

There is a new addition to the WHNT family! Meet baby Faith.

Melissa wants us to share with you that her family will be spending some time in the NICU at Huntsville Hospital for Women and Children.

Faith was born with a mild heart condition.

Mom and dad are meeting with doctors to get a better understanding of what’s ahead. But, in the mean time, they are very appreciative of the love and support they have received at the NICU and from all of you at home.

Melissa and family, from all of us at WHNT, we are so happy for your little blessing and are sending our love and prayers.
