Born into Crisis: Children exposed to lead still struggling to catch up

FLINT (WJRT) - (02/22/18) - It's been more than three years since national cameras first focused on Flint and a water crisis that would fade from the headlines.

But, it became a new normal inside Flint homes.

We began following several babies who were born just as their parents learned their water had been contaminated with lead and their youngest children were most at risk.

For those who drank the water before the danger was revealed, services are now in place to help.

But there are still so many fears and unknowns as these children grow and live without clean drinking water.

Early intervention is key.

A new registry will now make it easier than ever before for those impacted by the water crisis to share their stories and get the resources they need to rise above it.
