Adoptive family struggles to contain girl's rages

Kristi Phillips talks to her daughter, Rosie, at their home in Sartell before leaving to see their new home.
Elizabeth "Rosie" Phillips' congenital rubella syndrome stripped her of her hearing, most of her vision and gave her profound mental disabilities, autism and a host of other physical disabilities. But a progressive neurological disorder is making the teen increasingly violent while giving her the strength to effortlessly throw her 240-pound father across the room. A contractor is helping the family build a new home with a safe room to keep Rosie from hurting herself or her family. St. Cloud Times (Minn.)
