Taken off life support and left to die, Haleigh’s now thriving with her adoptive parents

Posted by Joseph on 28 August, 2014

A girl who nine years ago was expected never to regain consciousness and was abandoned by Massachusetts welfare authorities, hospital medical staff, and the courts now watches the Disney Channel, enjoys the music of Justin Bieber and her Westfield Evangelical Free Church congregation, and tells her adoptive parents she loves them.

Haleigh, now 20, is by all accounts a happy woman living surrounded by love with her siblings, her adoptive parents Keith and Becky Arnett, and other foster children the couple have taken in over the years.


But Haleigh is far from typical. Once the center of a public furore over official negligence and passive euthanasia, she now relies on a wheelchair for mobility and reads and understands the world at a Grade Seven level because of the terrible abuse by her aunt and uncle, Holli and Jason Strickland.
