Is this story about a Brooke Greenberg for real?

Does anyone have any information about this story? Apparently there is a 12-year-old child in Maryland with the appearance of a baby. Brooke Greenberg has an previously unrecognized medical condition and seems to be the only one of her kind in the world.

The link to the original news story says it has been "removed". A Welsh View states that (prior to being removed), a slideshow and video of the girl was available.

Is this a hoax? Both a Yahoo and Google searchs on the web show no references to this and both Yahoo and Google news searches all refer to identify the same story (which has been removed).

Very curious...

Yeah, I saw a snippet about that on Drudgereport.com. I think it's a variation on a chromosomal trisomy, if that means anything.

I know this is true because I work with her father!!! Why would someone lie about such a thing? Are you people that shallow that you think someone would create such a story?

I can't believe that there are such stupid people out there who think this story is a hoax. Brooke Greenberg is an angel given to her parents and if you don't like the story or can't accept it then please don't bother sending in your comments. Comments about her case being a hoax must be hurting her parents.
