Like Peter Pan, but with the brain of an infant

They are calling it "Ashley's procedure" since it's never been done until now, and our would-be protagonist was unlikely to be named Peter because she's a girl. But like The Pan, Ashley will never grow up. Doctor's did all sorts of weird things I'm sure I don't want to know about in detail, and now she'll stay little - Forever 9, although she looks younger.

Now I suppose if they could have stopped her growing when she was 3 months it would have been more symmetrical, because she apparently has the mental capacity of a 3 month old, and apparently always will. I don't even know how to being to assess the morality of this.

They can do that??

They DID do that?!?!?

Thanks for putting up the link, a fascinating and heart-warming story of a family doing their best to give their daughter the best life she can have.

Taking the time to read through the parents' blog made me want to fly to Seattle to hug them:
