And a hero lies in you...Big prayers for Tripp

A baby means new life and hope, but what if your baby is is condition like the two-year-old Tripp Roth.

Tripp supposed to be laughing, walking, talking, and hug by his parent to show affections, his condition is different, a single touch will make his skin to blister.

The baby from Ponchatoula, Louisiana was born by Courtney Roth with skin disorder in a rare skin disease of junctional epidermolysis bullosa.

Her mother said "He is just amazing. I have always said that from the beginning."

"I have never been sad around him and I try not to cry around him. We've made it to where he is in the happiest environment possible. His spirit and personality are what keep me going."

"When Tripp was born, he had just one small blister on his head and a few on his back, and doctors diagnosed him with the debilitating EB immediately.

Tripp struggled with breastfeeding because of the sores in his mouth so doctors used a feeding tube instead."

"It's so hard,’ Courtney, who was a nurse until her son’s birth, told ABC. ‘Obviously he can't speak. He can communicate well, but we have a hard time and from what I can see in his mannerisms, he definitely looks in pain all the time."
