In this episode of the show "Dr. Phil," the mother of the only known set of deaf-blind triplets in the world is interviewed, her story told, and anxieties revealed. She and her husband have both come to Dr. Phil for help. Dr. Phil, along with Jennifer Rothschild, a woman who became blind at 15, and other guests, offer their advice, stories, support, and resources. An excerpt from the show "Follow-Ups" is also included, in which the family discusses the triumphs and tribulations associated with the resources they were given, including an intervener, and how they have overcome so much in so little time.
