Kaymbria’s brain scans didn’t show much promise. Born healthy and happy not even four months earlier, she now faced a lifetime of complete care—unable to walk, talk, or even see. Her brain injury was so severe, physicians felt she would be socially unaware –unable to show or respond to affection. In addition, she had regular seizures. This beautiful baby girl had some blessings coming her way, though.
