Barbara Jean Rick, Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital's smallest baby, is blind. She is three months old and weighted 2 pounds 4 ounces. Her doctor says this occurs in about 10 percent of cases where the baby weighs less than three pounds at birth. Barbara Jean was also a member of the Tri-Cities largest family, with 16 brothers and sisters.
