I have to admit, I am not normally a Dr. Phil fan. I was in the beginning, but his views about ADHD (or the lack of its existence) had driven me away.
Today, on one of my groups, someone mentioned that he was going to have triplets on the show that were born premature. I set it on my DVR and figured I would watch it later. I fully expected the show to be all about "miracles" but instead it was the opposite. I just finished watching it. I spent the entire show in tears.
The triplets (Zoe, Emma and Sophie) were born at 25 weeks. They are blind due to ROP and deaf due to the ototoxic meds used while they were in the NICU. Although the theme of the show was how their condition has impacted their mom and her husband (mom and bio dad divorced after the girls were born and mom re-married), Mom was quoted as saying, "I thought they would come out of the NICU unscathed."
A documentary was made about the girls in hopes of raising awareness about deaf/blind children and to raise money so the girls could get the much needed services that their parents can't afford.
