Carrie "My Little Overcomer"
“Something is wrong with Carrie. Her head is too small and she does not have a soft spot.” I was stunned as I did not have an idea as to what this meant at all.

Nancy had nothing to do with any of that and she looked at the doctor defiantly and said, “God has given Carrie to us and He will take care of her.”
