Rushville baby genetically "one of a kind"

Every baby is one-of-a-kind, but one Rushville couple's new addition is extra special.
According to the Journal Courier, doctors diagnosed 15-week-old Emma McGovern with a genetic condition so rare that she's presumed to be the only person diagnosed with it.
Emma was presumed to be healthy and normal until nine weeks ago when she began have breathing problems.
That's when doctors realized some of her chromosomes in her genetic make-up are completely different than what's normal.
Because the condition is so unique, her parents Kory and Mickayla McGovern of rural Rushville, have no idea how it might affect her childhood development and long-term health.
This is a little girl folks in the community are rallying behind, as she is finally able to come home.
