“She is cognitive of the fact that she looks different. Unfortunately for us to have all the accouterments that she would need because
she is a little girl, she wants her hair to look good. She wants to be able to dress and clean herself. Without elbows she is not able to do that,” says Andrew Condrey, Terra’s stepfather.
