Los Angeles Daily News

The doctors told Elizabeth Criss that a child with her daughter’s disorder would only live until she was 8.

She would suffer from seizures, the doctors said. She would likely be unable to communicate and would have problems with her vision.

Almost all of that was true, except Emily Criss is now 29.

“We never expected she would age out of the school system,” Elizabeth Criss said. “It feels good when the doctors are wrong.”
