Courtney and Evan Westlake live a happy life with their son Connor. They have decided to make their lives that much better with a second child. Like all soon-to-be parents, they are chomping at the bit to see the first ultrasound pictures. They are ecstatic each and every time they see new pictures, reassured that everything is going well. A few months into the pregnancy, they discover that they will give birth to a little daughter: Connor is getting a little sister!
The young married couple are overjoyed and begin to joke together. “I’m not going to braid her hair!” laughs Evan. The big day arrives and just a few weeks before New Year’s the little girl is born. All plans for the future are shattered instantly. Brenna, their newborn daughter, must be rushed to intensive care immediately. She isn’t moving, has an extreme temperature and is covered in wounds all over her body.
