Summary Note When Charlotte and Sean O'Keefe's daughter, Willow, is born with osteogenesis imperfecta (OI), they are devastated - she will suffer hundreds of broken bones as she grows, a lifetime of pain. As the family struggles to make ends meet to cover Willow's medical expenses, Charlotte thinks she has found an answer. If she files a wrongful birth lawsuit against her ob/gyn for not telling her in advance that her child would be born severely disabled, the financial payout might ensure a lifetime of care for Willow. But it means that Charlotte has to get up in a court of law and say in public that she would have terminated the pregnancy if she'd known about the disability in advance - words that her husband can't abide, that Willow will hear and that Charlotte cannot reconcile. And the ob/gyn she is suing isn't just her physician - it's her best friend. Handle with Care explores the knotty tangle of medical ethics and personal morality.
