(WTVF/CNN) — A Memphis newborn is getting a lot of attention after she was born on 9/11 – weighing 9 pounds and 11 ounces.

Christina Brown's parents say her birth is something to celebrate on September 11, a date that’s linked with sadness and horror for many Americans.

"On that day, 9/11, you know you find triumph, you find a piece of joy from a day that's so drastic and still hurts,” her mother, Cametrione, told CBS affiliate WREG .

WREG says the baby was born at Methodist LeBonheur Germantown. Nurses said they’ve never seen anything like it.

Baby Christina is in the NICU for a minor lung condition, but she is expected to be okay.
