NEW BERLIN – Corbin Alfred McHenry was born April 4, 2013 weighing four pounds, four ounces and was 17 inches long. While pregnant, Kara McHenry - a 2010 Unadilla Valley Cental School graduate - learned that her son had a chromosomal condition known as Trisomy 13. Baby Corbin had to be delivered via emergency cesarian section eight weeks prior to his due date, and was given a one percent chance to be born breathing. The doctors had notified Baby Corbin’s parents - Shane and Kara McHenry - that if he was born alive, they would have very few moments with him, as he had many severe medical issues.
