Well, maybe not THAT long ago and it was this galaxy, but it was a pretty long stretch.

Then 11 years later, she became pregnant with her miracle baby. The doctors were unsure she would be able to keep it due to the fact she suffers from an Auto immune disease, called Copper deficiency myeloneuropathy, and was receiving infusions bi-weekly Monday-Friday, there was little hope. But the force was strong with this one.

Overcoming the dark side and beating all the odds, this little Jedi came into this world with 10 fingers, 10 toes and a lightsaber at hand. They told her while pregnant he may not be the healthiest due to my sisters immune system being weakened, and that is just the case. He was born with a few bumps in the road, jaundice, his lung not expanding as much as it should and a weakened immune system as well. This young padawan is fighting all the battle droids and stormtroopers coming his way and winning every battle.
