The Girl Who Doesn't Age

I saw a show about this girl, Brooke Greenberg, who is 16 years old but stopped developing by the time she was 2-3. So, as the years passed, she has stayed the exact same while her other sisters continue to grow and develop normally. Despite her age, her lack of development also includes a lack of mental growth, so she also has the mind of a toddler. I thought this crazy and amazing at the same time.

This is Brooke at age 13, with her younger 10 year old sister.

    It is really sad for her family but I guess at the same time, it unites them because her sisters are all really protective and caring of her. Still, it must be terrifying for her parents to keep getting told by doctors they have no idea whats wrong with her, how long she has to live, etc.

    so if she's 16 but looks like a toddler does that mean it would be like having sex with a toddler but without the legal ramifications? lol
