    Travis, Do what you think is right and forget people who are rude.
    This chat is supposed to be a nice one and you should do what you feel
    is right. Take her advice and try the splint method, it's worth that.
    If it doesn't work, then love the little one anyway. We are not
    perfect and sometimes what works for one does not work for another. I,
    personally wish you and your little one the best and will say a prayer
    for you. God bless, Connie
