I am on a mission to educate people who have kids born without thumbs and do or do not have esophagus problems. I have a nephew who had both of these things and he was just diagnosed with a disease that is called Fanconi anemia. Kids with the above issues should be tested for this as soon as possible before symptoms start. Please spread the word. Also visit www.Fanconi.org
