Get Well

My nephew Cooper was born addicted to Heroin. This is him at a week old at the Children's Hospital. He was very healthy for a drug baby, but still had symptoms of withdrawal after being born. He is healthy and happy now, but still faces a lifetime of potential problems. In the wake of the opoid epidemic, this scene may become more and more familiar.
