  • AUROA, Ohio -- As the world remembers the 12th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, there's a family that's preparing cake and presents for the day.

    For them, 9/11 wasn't a day that changed their life for the worse. Instead, things got better.

    While all births make ink, his made newspaper ink because of when he popped into the world.

    Evan Intihar of Aurora is a 9-11 baby.

    The day those planes crashed and thousands of lives ended, his dad, who is a firefighter in Warrensville Heights, felt two distinct emotions.

    From Twin Tower baby spoon gifts to front page feature stories, the realization that their second son's life would be joined at the hip by history was evident the minute they left the hospital.

    It has been 12 years. He has grown to know he's part of a rare club, born on a dark day. Despite all that, Evan says he wouldn't change his birthday if he could.
