For more than two hours Sunday, hundreds of parents with giddy children stood in line to spend a few minutes with a jovial man wearing small, wire-rimmed spectacles and bushy, gray hair rolling down over his shoulders. Despite the vague similarity to a Christmas scene with Santa, these families came to say thank you for gifts they had already received: babies that might not have been born if it weren't for the long-haired doctor at the front of the line.

Re: "Irvine Fertility Doctor Is the Life of the Party" (Oct. 30). Having read all the negative publicity recently about fertility doctors, I'm pleased The Times found the time to profile one of most truly remarkable men I've ever met. Having been a patient of Dr. [Lawrence] Werlin's, I can attest to his remarkable level of caring and professionalism toward people in a medical field where patient emotions demand an exacting toll on a daily basis. In a society where role models are sorely lacking, it is appropriate that a man of Dr. Werlin's character is associated with the miracle of life.

Babies were recently born to two women who apparently are the first in Orange County to conceive using new fertility treatments that involve the injection of sperm directly into an egg, hospital officials reported Thursday. Nicole Joy Tigner was born to Terry and Diana Tigner of Orange on Feb. 12 at Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach. The baby was the first birth at the hospital resulting from a variation of the technique called micro-manipulation, spokeswoman Maureen Mazzatenta said.

The birth of an 8-pound, 10-ounce boy has marked the first birth of a baby conceived under a program at Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian that uses a frozen pre-embryo that was thawed and implanted into the mother, officials announced Tuesday. Ann Brown, a 41-year-old Laguna Beach counseling intern, gave birth to Garrett Holderness Brown on Oct. 31 at 10:36 p.m. Hoag spokeswoman Pam Bolen said it was the first time that the process, called cryopreservation, had been performed in the county.

First there was the first test-tube baby. Then there was the first test-tube baby conceived in Orange County. Then there was the first test-tube baby born in Orange County. Then Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian in Newport Beach announced Friday that the first test-tube baby had been "born through an Orange County program." Oops. Make that the second. At least the second.

Over the years, the young woman said softly, she had given her sister many presents--clothing, jewelry. But never before "a gift of life." Her older sister is infertile. But now, after an in vitro fertilization procedure that used the younger sister's ovarian eggs, the older woman is in her third month of pregnancy. And both sisters are ecstatic. Not only is this pregnancy a personal triumph for the Mission Viejo women, but according to several fertility experts around the country, it may have made medical history.

You assume you're about to enter a world of chaos when you ring the Miners' doorbell. You expect screaming babies and frazzled parents and overflowing diaper pails. But, all things considered, the household in Orange was surprisingly calm one recent morning. True, the babies cried, though generally not in sync. While Jeffrey fussed, Whitney giggled, Vincent slept and Brianna slurped her lunch from a bottle.

You'd have to be pretty heartless to begrudge the blessings of fertility treatment after reading Michael Ryan's new book. But what about the way medical technology drives eager couples to obsess every step of the way? "Baby B" follows the 13 weeks during which Ryan and his wife, Doreen Gildroy, conceive through in vitro fertilization and endure the roller-coaster beginning of a pregnancy. With the help of their larger-than-life fertility specialist, Dr. Lawrence B.
