Great story, and story-behind-the-story

A little girl grows up neglected, left in a closet, until she's 7 years old and almost beyond hope. Then a couple adopts her, and begins to try to give her a life. Here is Lane DeGregory's story.

And here is how Lane and photographer Melissa Lyttle found the story, got the access, reported, photographed and produced the story ... and what happened when, a couple months into the reporting/photography, someone asked, 'What do you have for the web?' and their answer was, 'Nothing.' Read how they turned a negative into a positive. Great stuff for anyone who works on enterprise ... which is pretty much everyone here.
