    Tiny Baby Celebrates 1st Birthday

    Hilea Maurer weighed just 12 ounces when doctors delivered her at Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove a year ago.

    On Tuesday, the doctors who saved Hilea's life helped her celebrate her 1st birthday.

    Hospital staff gathered to sing their rendition of "Happy Birthday" to the birthday girl. She's only a year old, but as Padilla reported, she's already given her parents a lifetime of joy simply by beating the odds.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    What I find so amazing about this story, is not only that she is alive, she has gained weight, but that she is also developing normally. Modern medicine has certainly come a long way. Did you look at that pic from shortly after her birth?
