What Happened in Your Family?Imagine a routine mishap during childhood. A 5-year-old with a turbocharged body is curious to explore his world. Attracted by a sparkling new item Mom has just brought home, he dashes across the room, loses his balance and hits his head on the wooden floor.

Startled, he looks to his mom for comfort and reassurance that all is okay.
