Pat tenderly pats Bella on the behind. Bella, three, still wears diapers because she refuses to use the toilet. Pat says she is patient and gets through to Bella better when empowering her, allowing Bella to play the prima donna. Pat's efforts with Bella have amazed Bella's doctors, who believed Bella would never talk or walk. (photo by Pico van Houtryve)
