Aspen Saige was a complete surprise to her parents Amanda Guerro and Patrick Betone of Alamo. Having been told on the reservation she couldn’t be pregnant when she asked for a pregnancy test about four months earlier, Guerro found herself in an ambulance from Alamo on Sunday and pushing by the time they went through Water Canyon. Aspen, the first baby of the new year at Socorro General Hospital, arrived Jan. 14 at 12:38 a.m. She was 6 pounds, 4 ounces and 19 inches long.
