Wayne, by all means take the photos to a podiatrist. You might also want to ask them if Dr. Van Ingen's examination of Charlie a few weeks earlier should have raised any red flags, ie. potential for trouble running or walking. From what I know about this condition, overlapping toes is a relatively common occurrence for babies that were positioned improperly in the womb, and the condition is also believed to be hereditary. Do you know if Charlie's condition was being addressed in any way, such as fixing or taping of the toes to passively re-align them? It seems to me, that if Van Ingen had had any real concerns other than to simply comment on the fact, he would have noted them then and there.

As far as Anne referring to Charlie as an 18-month-old, I have no idea how she could have said that unless she was just bad with numbers. Perhaps a simple editing error? Based on some of the mistakes in many of the books on this case, it's obvious the authors themselves didn't read his or her own final proof.

        Joe, I have taken the photos to several podiatrists. I am encouraging everyone here to do the same and compare the findings (here). As for Anne's writing... everything she wrote, and I mean... more

          Wayne, any thoughts on why Dr. Van Ingen failed to recognize Charlie's toes were "severely deformed?" And I've never seen references to any corrective measures having taken place to re-align them... more
