You want to know

how to become a champion?

It's easy.

Turn your dream into your goal.

Plant it deep in your heart,

then for the next 10 years,

eat, sleep, breathe,

laugh, and cry

without ever taking

your eye off your goal.

Not even for a second.

You want to know how

to stop becoming a champion?

I actually tried that once.

Believe it or not,

that was a lot harder.

She's still bleeding.

Pulse ox 178.

Let me see her!

Doctor. Blood pressure.

Let me see her.

Take the baby out of here.

Right away, Doctor.

No, why can't I see the baby?

My mom nearly

died the day I was born.

The way I heard it later,

it was a collision course of everything

going wrong at the same time.

Tim, go with her!

Don't leave the baby alone!

But even then,

she wasn't thinking about herself.

You're gonna be fine.

What's wrong with her?

Why can't I see my baby?

Why can't I see the baby?

Why can't I see her?

It's called branched-chain

ketoaciduria.

It's a rare blood deficiency.

Tell me what that means.

It's a metabolic disorder.

A deficiency of the branched-chain

alpha-keto acid dehydrogenase complex,

which catalyzes the catabolism

of the branched-chain

amino acids...

These are all

just fancy words for,

"We don't know how to fix

"what's wrong with your baby."

All right, should

be just up ahead.

Mom thought a new city

would help my dad find a job.

But by the time we got to Tulsa,

the landlord had given our place away.

He kept our down payment, too.

And we had so many eviction judgments

against us, no one else would rent to us.

How soon?

By tomorrow.

Check out by noon at the latest.

We got him to give

us an extra hour.

Did you tell

him we have four kids?

Yeah, he knows.

Look, why don't

you call your mother...

I'm not gonna call her again.

We've done this enough to her

and to the rest of my family.

They don't need to know

it's gotten this bad again.

All right, baby.

Hey, honey.

Stop jumping on

the bed, sweetie.

Stop jumping on the bed.

Sit down.

Gabrielle's getting

better, isn't she?

Yes, she is getting better.

Mom?

Yes?

How come we had to leave again?

Daddy's not working.

But this is kind

of like camping.

If we're camping,

then where are the tents?

Don't worry.

Everything's gonna be okay.

Why don't you try

to get some sleep?

It's too cold.

Come on. Come here.

Let's get you warmed up

and get you thinking

about other things.

Let me hear you say your prayer.

Heavenly Father...

We thank you for all

of your many blessings,

and thank you for watching over us and

giving us sweet and peaceful sleep.

- Amen.

- Amen.

Very good.

Oh, I love you, sweetie.

You told me last week I was...

What did he say?

He said they can't lend

me any more money.

It's not what

he told me last week.

You know, Nat,

I should've never have asked.

I don't need

to sink to that level.

You know, I still got my pride.

I just got to wait

for my ship to come in.

That's all.

I'm calling my mom.

I thought we weren't gonna

crash at your mom's house.

We're not.

I am with the kids.

What?

I can't do this anymore.

You don't mean that, Natalie.

I'm gonna get on my feet.

You know that.

We don't have money for gas.

And when the kids wake up,

what are we gonna feed them?

We'll find something.

You know,

we'll go on assistance until I can get...

No, no, no, no.

Don't talk to me about food stamps.

That's one thing

I will never do.

I'm just tired of promises

that don't come true.

Natalie, where's your faith?

God is looking out for us.

Please.

Scripture says that we...

Please! Please.
