Baby Eli was born with the rare condition of not having a nose. His parents, Brandi and Troy Thompson were, like most parents-to-be, imagining the arrival of a healthy baby boy. When Eli was born, he was plenty healthy, but without his nose. He was given a tracheotomy to assist him in breathing. Doctors are working with the couple as Eli grows, hoping one day they will be able to have the surgery that will provide him a nose.
