  1. Great episode. Amazing family! We know Sarah and her family well. Caleb has changed my life and I am forever grateful for his smile and spirit.

    1. An amazing episode and an amazing family! I cannot imagine what a parent would or could do when the doctor is telling you what you absolutely do not want to hear…about not just one, but two children. This was an honest and open glimpse at the shock and struggle a family went through. Thank you for sharing this with us.
