Bryce Staverman was born without the part of the brain that controls his gross and fine motor skills. He cannot walk or talk, but he can understand much more than people might think. A family friend gave him an iPad for Christmas last year, and he uses it to communicate, track his GPS location, search for roller coasters and take his own videos. Watching him makes you wonder about the mysteries of the mind. "No one ever asks for a child with special needs," says his mom, Kris. "But maybe they should, because what they give you is they look at the world with happiness and joy — and they give unconditional love."
