Under normal circumstances, 8-year-old Tyana Smith is like most children her age.
She loves Hannah Montana, cheese pizza, McDonalds and the colors pink and purple. A second grader at New Castle Elementary School, Tyana’s favorite school subject is spelling.
On a recent family pool outing, Tyana had fun splashing around her two brothers and two half-brothers.
According to her mother Peggy Smith, Tyana normally is quite active, and it’s not uncommon for the second grader to run around doing flips and cartwheels.
