The doctor in Sudan told the young mother she was expecting. At least three babies, the doctor said, maybe four. Adwai Malual, a 28-year-old married bank teller, considered following the doctor's advice and going to Jordan for medical care. But then she thought of her older sister living in Prince George's County and her mother-in-law in Minnesota. Malual's mother, Anne Abyei, explained yesterday how her daughter decided to head to the United States. The trip would allow Malual to accomplish two goals: get medical care for herself and her unborn children, and meet with her mother-in-law before giving birth, the custom in Sudan.

The four little girls had on black patent-leather Mary Jane shoes when they arrived at the Martin Luther King Jr. Early Head Start program this week. Their brother had on a brown model. Make no mistake. They are the Davis quintuplets: JaMir, the eldest and the lone boy, and his sisters, Si'ani, NaRae, Jade and Rayne. At birth, each weighed between 2 and 3 pounds. Now 2 1/2 years old, their weights range between 21 and 28 pounds. All smiles and happy energy, they were making Easter baskets at the King Center, at Rutland Avenue near Lanvale Street.

Last spring, when her obstetrician suggested an ultrasound test to see if she was carrying more than one baby, Jennell Dickens prayed that she wasn't carrying twins. When an ultrasound technician examined her belly, counting two, three and four heartbeats, she steeled herself for quadruplets. That was before a radiologist entered the room and found another heartbeat. Dickens cried for two months. Yesterday, she was the picture of composure, smiling and laughing at the University of Maryland Medical Center just two days after delivering four girls and a boy 10 weeks early.

With her quintuplets riding as passengers, single-file, Gisel Mora arrived at Camden Yards recently with a one-of-its-kind baby stroller. The five babies, all healthy and happy, had come to see where Daddy worked. Melvin Mora emerged from the Orioles' clubhouse and smiled. What a difference a year makes, he thought. There were times last season when Melvin would fall asleep in the batting cage from sheer exhaustion. He would go straight from the ballpark to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where Gisel was treated during a most complicated pregnancy.

YORK, PA. -- It took a minivan and a sedan to cart five babies and four generations of the Good family home to Gatchelville. Although the quintuplets' arrival had been the talk of the town, people treated it as a solemn event, showing the family the same respect they do the Amish who pass through this hilly farmland. After the cameras and microphones at the hospital in Baltimore, Ruth and David Good were relieved to see no one gathered by the mailbox. Neighbors next door merely glanced up from mulching their garden to witness the medical miracle pulling into the driveway.

All five babies are quiet, all asleep. It's midafternoon and the lights in the living room of the one-bedroom Northeast Baltimore apartment are dimmed. The television is on, but barely audible. Dad's cell phone has been turned to vibrate and the house phone's ringer is on low. All to keep the babies dreamy. They lay, one with Daddy, two in their playpen; the others on the couch. It is calm. Thank goodness, say Mom and Dad, who have slept all of two hours. As the parents of the first set of quintuplets born in Baltimore since 2001, they need naps, too. But Jade, who rests against Dad's chest, starts cooing just loud enough to get the other babies stirring.

As baseball All-Star Melvin Mora steps onto the lush, manicured green turf tonight, he will serve as a reminder that there are really two forms of stardom: one on the field, one in the minds of corporate bigwigs. The difference between the two is enormous. Mora, for the first half of this baseball season at least, has achieved the first. His sizzling .349 batting average for the Orioles has earned him his first trip - and the only one by an Oriole this year - to the All Star Game, which will be played tonight at Chicago in what purists still call Comiskey Park.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Sometimes when you talk to Melvin Mora, you wonder if he wasn't dropped on Earth to remind us all to take a chill, to have a good attitude, to establish a reservoir of unshakable faith that diffuses anger toward heaven, where some other force will help out. This is the power of Melvin. Sometimes you wonder if the Venezuelan utility man wasn't sent here to prove that a person can balance serenity with competitive fire, sensitivity with strength, respectful reserve with fetching personality.
