Family Looks for Help in Building Addition Onto Home for WS Son

CBS 7 - Your Eye on West Texas

Trace sufferes from Williams Syndrome, a genetic disorder which formed his arteries too small; making it difficult to breath and even harder to play.

"We're supposed to limit his activity and its hard to do with having older brothers and wanting to play and stuff."

The Covington's home is also a challenge. Trace doesn't have a bedroom and in between playing the piano and riding piggy back on his big brother's bike, Trace has few places to recoup.

"We're just wanting to have an environment so he can go and have fun instead of going outside and running and playing and stuff."

So, Trace's parents contacted the Make A Wish Foundation, in hopes of giving their son his first bedroom.

"It tears at our hearts that he's having to do without."

Unfortunately, just when they thought Trace's wish was granted, Make A Wish informed them otherwise.
