"Defining Family"

With a zest for life that underlies the turmoil surrounding her birth, 5-year-old Jackie Lorraine Keith embraces life with the flair of a "little drama queen." Five years ago, Sonya Keith was forced into motherhood, questioned life and the future of her unborn daughter. Today, the two embrace life and one another. Sonya now realizes that her traumatic situation became a lifelong blessing.
