Marina, Felix and all of us are healthy and happy. Thank you all so much for your support!” (Via Facebook / Lulu & Leo Fund ) Felix — a name that means happy and prosperous. (Via Babynames.com ) This prosperity and happiness comes after a very dark period for the New York family. “It was back in October of last year when their 6-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son were found dead in the bathtub of their upper West Side apartment. Marina was picking up her third child from swim practice when the two kids were allegedly killed by their nanny.” (Via WCAU ) The nanny, Yoselyn Ortega, was found on the floor of the bathroom with her throat slit in a suspected suicide attempt. After months in the hospital — she recovered. In August Ortega pleaded not guilty to the stabbing deaths. After trying to make a plea of insanity, the judge found her fit to stand trial. (Via New York Daily News ) Ortega has never said why she allegedly killed the children but reports claim she resented her employers for expecting her to do housework. After she woke up from a coma a police officer said “She said something like, ‘I'm paid to watch the children, not clean up and do housework’”. (Via Daily Mail ) The Kims have a fund set up in honor of their lost children — the Lulu and Leo Fund — it raises money for children’s education and enrichment programs. (Via Lulu & Leo Fund ) The Krims say their surviving child, Nessie, was very excited to welcome her new baby brother.
