Rough Beginning (#201) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

Every day, some of life's most challenging battles are fought by the most innocent members of society-babies. After an unexpected pregnancy, Janett and Gian find out their baby boy will be born with a life-threatening condition called gastroschisis, a birth defect in which the intestines are outside of the body. Without immediate medical treatment, baby Theodore's life will be in danger as soon as he is born. Follow the journey of a beautiful family whose bond grows stronger during their biggest life challenge and the doctors and nurses who pull together with hopes of giving Theodore a future.

Last Chance (#202) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

For many, the difference between life and death depends on the country they were born in. Like 14-year-old Holman and 8-year-old Eva, who were both born with heart disease in Nicaragua. In their country, even if children survive the surgery, they run a high risk of dying from infection in the intensive care unit afterward. With no money to explore foreign options, the families must undergo a test of faith that nearly shatters their deep strength of spirit.
