Lisa Saunders, a licensed child care provider, never heard of her occupational risk for CMV, until after her daughter Elizabeth was born with a small, damaged brain from congenital CMV. Elizabeth is seen here as a newborn in 1989 with her mother and big sister. Elizabeth died at 16 during a seizure in 2006.
