One North Carolina mother learned the hard way that even modern vital records can be incorrect.
Shaquanna Little is the proud mother of a six-month-old boy named Laron. He was born February 25. But that is not the date on Laron's birth certificate. The document shows his birth date as February 26.
Little said she didn't notice the mistake until days after she'd left Presbyterian Hospital in Huntersville.
Little said the hospital's vital records department told her she'd have to pay $53 to have the birth certificate corrected or it would stay the same. [Link]For an extra twenty bucks they'll change an "M" to an "F" and give you the daughter you've always wanted.
