STORY SUMMARY: For the first seven years of her life, Danielle never saw the sun, felt the wind or tasted solid food. She was kept in a closet in a Plant City apartment, cloistered in darkness, left in a dirty diaper, fed only with a bottle. "She was a feral child," said Carolyn Eastman of the Tampa heart Gallery. "We'd never seen a case like that."
