But success does come at a cost. Many people may be surprised to know that the two oldest Osmond brothers, George Virl and Tom, were born hearing impaired. In her book, Marie recalls how her daughter Jessica, whom she adopted, revealed that she was attracted to girls when she was 17 and that she is a member of the LGBT community.
