North Barrington Family Welcomes 2nd Baby just after 2am on ‘Twosday’

Bart Rachwal and Ursula Kopiczko welcomed their second child at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital at 2:08 a.m. on 02/22/22, a baby girl named Alexis “Lexi” Karolina Rachwal.

“We wanted two children, and our daughter arrived on ‘Twosday,’ to complete our pair,” said mom, Ursula. “It’s a magical alignment, and one that our children and grandchildren won’t see in their lifetimes.”

Weighing in at 7 lbs. 15 oz. and measuring 20 inches long, Lexi joins older brother Kane, who is a little over two and a half years old. Kane was born on a Tuesday at 1:08 a.m. in 2019.

“Both children born on the same day of the week, an hour, but years apart,” continued Kopiczko. “The universe spoke to our daughter.”

The family will bring Lexi home to North Barrington, and are thrilled with their perfect pair.

From the Community

“Perhaps the most hurtful impact of the stigma surrounding mental illness is the common belief that women with mental illness cannot be good mothers. In a society that values ‘self-sacrificing mothers’ and rewards adherence to gender norms, we often deem that a ‘good mother’ has few needs and challenges of her own; rather, she can commit herself in her entirety to her children.

Mental illness can certainly make some aspects of motherhood more challenging, but it doesn’t disqualify those of us living with a mental health condition from being good parents. In fact, research suggests that many issues faced by mothers with mental illness are generic to all parents. While mothers with mental illness may experience more unique challenges from their symptoms, or from medication and treatment obligations, these risks can be managed with the guidance of a good collaborative care team.”
