Last in the series of dramatic journeys in five people's lives with Desmond Wilcox Yvonne and Jim Yvonne and Jim McNally , a married couple in Belfast, have overcome disabilities beyond most people's comprehension - in order to lead their lives together. They are both victims of Thalidomide.
Yvonne, without arms, does everything with her feet. Jim, with deformed arms, has managed to qualify as a taxi driver.
More than anything they wanted a baby. The child had to be a test-tube baby. He was born on Christmas Eve; they called him Noel, and for five months they proved to the world that not only could they love him, but that they could also bring him up as well as any normal parents. Tragically, he died of a heart condition unconnected with their disabilities. But Yvonne and Jim are fighters, determined not to feel sorry for themselves and to reject any pity that others might feel for them. They plan to have another test-tube baby j and are already preparing to prove how 'normal' they are. Research CARON KEATING
