During this week marked by tragedy, we thought it might be nice to share some good news. Last week we celebrated Matt Roney’s pending fatherhood. He and his wife, Sara, are soon to be parents to twins—a girl and a boy.

Matt is an associate researcher whose focus is on renewable energy and the food system. Both issues can be tough to tackle, but we’re guessing it might be a little more challenging to care for newborn twins.

The EPI staff gave some helpful gifts including a baby carrier, bath toys, blankets, booties, books for the parents and the babies, and even some homemade sweaters.

The babies are due in the middle of May and we are anxiously awaiting their arrival. Our advice to Matt: get your sleep now while you can!!
