ReAna and Winter sit down together and recount the birth of ReAna's son Callan. Callan was diagnosed with a congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) while in utero. ReAna talks about coming to terms with having a child that would have to have many medical interventions due to CDH, and how she and her husband were ready for that. ReAna tells about finding a specialist in Florida and deciding that even though the lived in Washington, they would make the move and relocate cross country for their child till he was better. ReAna tells Winter about the morning she found out the Callan stopped moving and having to go to the hospital to find out that he had passed.
