However, grandmother Janelle Brown says that with the issues with Evie’s legs, she may have to have prosthesis to be able to function because one leg is bowed and one leg bone is missing.

Sister Wives Spoilers: Maddie Brown Brush Was Hesitant to Share The Diagnosis
Sister Wives’ Maddie was hesitant to share Evie’s diagnosis because of the fact that people can be cruel and she didn’t want her daughter to be cyberbullied. Maddie remembers getting out of her ultrasound and being stunned by the term limb difference. Maddie couldn’t even correctly pronounce her daughter’s diagnosis at the time.
Evie Brush was born last August but it was a couple of months before the Brush family decided to share her diagnosis because ultimately, it came down to possibly helping another parent struggling to accept this diagnosis with their child. Like any mother, when faced with such a diagnosis, Maddie Brown blamed herself but no one knows what causes FATCO so Maddie cannot blame herself.
Evie is loved by everyone in her family and her brother Axel Brush adores his little sister. Evie doesn’t seem to be letting this slow her down one bit. Can this little girl lead a normal life with her disabilities? What steps will have to taken to help Evie down the road?
