Forest Shuman came into the world at 8 pounds, 7 ounces, but not in a hospital as his mom Tristan and dad Dustin had hoped. “It was only 30 minutes to the hospital, but it took him 10,” Tristan Shuman said. He decided to arrive in their car. “Kinda rushed and got through the curves then I felt this immense pressure and told him I was like ‘I think he’s here, pretty sure he’s coming,’” she said. “He reached over and was like ‘Yep he’s here.’ I caught him, threw him up on my chest and he only made the littlest cry.” They weren’t far from Clackamas County’s Redland Fire Station. “I drive by here all the time, and there’s normally a cop here so I was hoping he’d see me, or these guys would be here and luckily we whipped in here and they were all here to help,” Dustin Shuman said.
