Mom Defies Diagnosis
When Veronica, 47, gave birth to her daughter, Justice, 25 years ago, she says she was given a bad epidural which led her to contract dystonia — a debilitating and painful disease of the muscles. Over the ensuing years, she was hospitalized multiple times, often bedridden, and her weight soared to 397 pounds.

Spurred by Justice's wedding, Veronica decided to lose the weight. She went to the gym almost every day for two years and is now a svelte 150 pounds.

Fake Baby Hair?
Most babies share similar features — sweet eyes, plump cheeks and bald heads — making it hard to determine if the little one is a boy or a girl.

So some moms, tired of declaring their baby’s gender, have found a surprising solution with Baby Bangs, the pint-sized hairpieces for girls who could be mistaken for boys.
