    Her metabolism must be slow as ever. Don`t you learn new ideas by neurons restructuring themselves? Perhaps that`s why she isnt learning...

    She has that same dumb look on her face as the mother. A face you just want to slap.

    And it isn`t going to live forever. They implied that the things lucky it lived this long.

    That took forever to load, but I`m very interested in this sort of thing (as I am a genetics major).

    Jonathan, most genetic disorders are paired with some form of mental retardation, thus the "dumb look". I can`t explain the mother`s look, but to me she looked completely normal.

    This is an intrigueing disorder, as she seems to be fighting death off relatively effectively, whereas most people with a genetic disorder as severe as this one die very early and for small reasons.

    It`s interesting that she is the only person in the world with the disorder. I would be tracing her parents history back, and I hypothesise that they are related only a few generations back.

    It is also likely that she grew fairly noramlly (I`m just guessing this from my own knowledge) until the age of about a year and then the disorder kicked in and prevented more learning and growing.

    I don`t think there will be a "cure" for this, but I do hope that she lives a full and happy life.

    I`ve heard of these cases, but the ones I heard they stayed as 5 - 8 year olds. And they were still mentally aging. (the little kid has to show his id everytime he goes into a casino)
    But I`ve never heard of a non aging baby in every aspect. Just ...amazing... She looks very happy too =D

    Have you seen your face lately? Those that live in glass houses shouldnt throw stones.
    Its a little girl, so you should refer to her as "she", not it.

    I find this very fascinating. I cant imagine how difficult it must be on the parents having a baby forever. Yes you *say* youd like your kids to stay babies forever, but in all reality, you look forward to them growing up on day.

    1) Express themselves
    2)hold they`re feelings in
    and i totally agree with him because it is a slappable face. i know its not nice but it`s so true. oh and what if they`re just lying because anyone could say im 600 years old. rite? oh and everyone says they wish they`re babies never grow up so i guess its a win-win for her or its parents.

    This is really sad because they are treating her like she hold some cure for death, when in reality she is dying everyday.
    And she is aging, if you look at here you can tell that she is just mentally retarded and that inside of her mind she has grown, in some of those pictures she doesn`t look like a baby, she looks like a little girl about the age of six.

    It looks to me that the little girl is happy (although you probably can`t really tell from that short clip) and that although she may not be what her parents would have expected, that they have accepted her in some form or other and that she does bring them joy in her own way. I have sympathy for them but I don`t feel sorry for them, if they portrayed the family correctly it looks like they`ve adjusted well to the situation.

    I also hope they never find a cure for aging. Dying of old age is good for the species, if not for the individual. Not all animals die of old age but those are the most primitive of animals which are in trouble. And like someone said before, we`re already overpopulated.

    "And she is aging, if you look at here you can tell that she is just mentally retarded and that inside of her mind she has grown, in some of those pictures she doesn`t look like a baby, she looks like a little girl about the age of six."

    I agree. I noticed the whole time she had this mix of appearences, like she had the structure of a six month old but the facial and body features of a six year old. And did you notice her motor skills? They were like that of a toddler sometimes...but it was obvious her body couldn`t quite manage all the intricate and strong movements. In a way, she`s like a weird amalgation of tiny baby and a preschooler with no mental capacity.

    Why must people label things like this as sick and weird? The child has a disorder! I myself am more amazed that that is a 12 year old human being who looks and is physically and mentally, an infant! How incredible! I hope the rest of the life she lives is as good as it can possibly be.

    In my opinion, the family sells their baby every few months and gets a new one that looks the same, so everyone thinks it`s the same person. But that`s just my opinion.

    Thats weird how I`m hearing about something this unusual just now..one would think this would have shown up on the news a few years before.

    I feel so sorry for her, I doubt there is any cure.

    what if the doctor is lying for attention and she really is like 6 months old? that seems logical to me.

    Creepy little kid. I felt a little uncomfortable watching her scoot across the floor. It all seemed very unnatural.

    Wow, if that`s true. I would just love the scientific explanation for that though. Don`t her cells need to reproduce? How does she not grow? (!!!!)
