Cindy and Mike are the parents of Evan who is now 29 years old and has Spina Bifida. During an ultrasound, Evan was diagnosed with Spina Bifida and Cindy and Mike were encouraged many times to abort him. When Evan was born, he stayed 17 days in the hospital and was also diagnosed with a rare kidney disease that was life-threatening. Cindy and Mike were lucky enough to find a great doctor who applauded them for not terminating their pregnancy, and was able to help them through their new journey. Evan is now a young man that is full of life; he is involved in many different activities, including a soccer team and a singing group.
