15 years ago Channel 4 and Ricochet TV set out to follow the lives of 6 remarkable children all born with disabilities. In this unique long running project, whether they are defying the odds just to be able to walk or fighting to survive until their next birthday, our cameras have been there every step of the way. This new series reunites the families as they celebrate their children's coming of age and we find out what it's like to be a disabled teenager approaching adulthood. In this first episode we catch up with William who's family is battling to get him a lifesaving drug; Zoey who in the past has undergone 6 major operations and wants to be head girl at her school; and Shelbie who has a chromosome disorder and needs regular blood transfusion to stay alive.
