Baby Jade Born on the Run Jade Joseph was born on the run. Her parents were fleeing New Orleans on Monday to get out of the path of Hurricane Katrina. Traveling down I-65, her mother suddenly went into labor. Her father pulled to the side of the road and called for an ambulance. Jade was born, weighing 8 pounds, 10 ounces. The family left almost all its belongings in New Orleans, but the Red Cross says baby clothes are being donated.
