Michelle Kish has 20 years of life under her belt, but the rest of the world doesn’t see her that way. Instead, “People assume that I am a lot younger than I am,” she told the BBC. And there was a good reason why.
The Kish family hails from Bartlett, Illinois. Parents Mary and Brad welcomed their eldest daughter, Sarah, and later became pregnant with Michelle. Mary reported that her second pregnancy had gone off without a hitch, as did her delivery.
But, when the couple’s second baby arrived, doctors informed the Kishes that there was something wrong with their newborn daughter, Michelle. To make matters worse, they were unable to diagnose what exactly was plaguing her.
