Pennock, Minn., couple finds strength in family, community after daughter diagnosed with fatal disorder
The sparkle in Tenley Thompson's bright blue eyes nearly outshines the lights on the Christmas tree in her parents' rural Pennock home, where the 19-month-old toddler quietly plays. Truth be told, the tree is merely a backdrop to a little girl who's captured the hearts of a community.
"She is the most loved child," said Emily Thompson, of her daughter. "Her personality and her big blue eyes get everybody's attention,"
But little Tenley is also breaking a lot of hearts.
