Evie’s genetic disorder was discovered when Maddie went for an ultrasound at 26 weeks.
Doctors diagnosed the baby with oligodactyly, a condition for people who have fewer than 10 fingers.
She recalled when she first learned the news: “We were shocked. I was just sitting there trying to comprehend what’s going on, having just had a baby as they are bringing in all these specialists. I was freaking out.”
