The Curious Case of Brooke Greenberg: 16-Year-Old Has the Body and Mind of a Toddler
Like most 16-year-olds, Brooke Greenberg enjoys shopping and listening to rock music.
But unlike other girls her age who are learning to drive and going to the prom, Brooke still wears diapers, travels in a stroller and can't walk or talk. Like a toddler, Brooke is 2-and-a-half feet tall and weighs only 16 pounds.
"For the past 10, 11 years, she's looked the same," said Brooke's father, Howard Greenberg. "The price is, she's adorable. She stopped aging at the right age."
Her bones are that of a 10-year-old, her teeth are 6-years-old, her brain is less than a year old, Walker said.Doctors aren’t sure how or why, but Brooke, who lives in Baltimore, Md., developed a mutation of the gene that controls aging and

As a father of 3 children....i wonder how I would have handled if my child stopped growing....how I would handle if my child would be a toddler for the rest of her life.
I know I would love my child no matter what and I would consider her a child from God but the other details would escape me until I would have to deal with them.
My fear would be that the scientist would look at my child as the literal fountain of youth and I dont know if I would like that.
What are your thoughts?
