I just wanted to post the email address they gave at the end of the segment for anyone who wants to help the family out:

Just heartbreaking. It always amazes me when people have things like that happen and bear it with such grace.

Wow, that will make me think twice about ever complaining about my son being born with club foot* or my daugther's tiny birthmark on her face. I really, really hope she gets all the help and surgeries she needs.

*totally repaired by surgery. To see him run, you'd never know. He had the same doctor who worked on Stephen King after he was hit by a van.

The only thing I can think of is this lady I used to work with had a son who when he was about 10, got into a car accident, while not wearing a seat belt in the back seat, and he slammed into the front seat face-first. Apparently they more-or-less rebuilt his face with titanium, and bone matter attached to the titanium and grew somehow adapting (for lack of a better word) to the presence of the titanium and filling in around it, so as he got older he didn't have to get more surgeries, and he looked like he'd never been in an accident, save for a small scar on his lower lip. He used to be able to attach magnets to his face. Maybe when she gets a bit older something similar could be done for her.

That really put things into perspective for me. My wife is 18 weeks pregnant.

Seeing that makes me very thankful that we have a healthy daughter, as far as we know.

Thanks for posting the story; I think I'll be writing them very soon.
