It is the Christmas list of a 12-year-old; a phone and Beats headphones. Pink or rose gold ones would be perfect.

Kaleigh Wright-Barton has those, too.

“Fingers crossed,” says Kaleigh. She says that a lot.

“This is probably the first year that we’re a little at ease,” says Echo Wright, 30, looking at her daughter. “Normally we’re so worried about your health, we just don’t know what could happen, but because you’re doing so well, we can expect to be home for Christmas this holiday season.”

“Fingers crossed again,” says Kaleigh.
