Soon I began to realize why he was special. His spirit was whole and beautiful, but his body was not. There was something missing. My heart started to break as the reason he was special began to reveal itself. Pam and her husband were ecstatic when they found out they were having a baby.

But soon they realized that something was wrong and eventually were delivered the shocking news-their baby had been born with an irreversible condition called Angelman Syndrome.
