    When Anamarie Regino, morbidly obese at the age of three, was removed from her family and placed in foster care, the controversial case attracted considerable media attention. Grannan's photograph of the child illustrated a story from the frustrateddfamily's point of view. The medical reason for Regino's exceptional weight gain is still undiagnosed.
