Brooke Greenberg is an infantile 13-year-old.
She looks like an infant, acts like an infant, and has been this way for the past thirteen years. Her parents have simply adjusted to the forever baby, as medical science is completely unable to explain her condition.
She’s been through a variety of medical near-misses, including a brain tumor that sprouted and then mysteriously shrank, and multiple warnings from doctors that sent her parents scrambling for a casket and burial outfit, only to have her recover rapidly and inexplicably.
Her parents say that while they initially expected her to die quickly, they now are fully prepared for her to outlive them all. Her father calls her the Fountain of Youth.
I hope she does outlive them. The existence of a genuine forever baby would please me greatly.
