In brief: Many defect types

The gastrointestinal tract runs from the lips to the anus, and thus has many different parts to it.
Each part can have a birth defect. The way a child's life is affected would depend on the location and severity if his defect(s).

In brief: Depends

Some defects are minor and cause no trouble at all, others are fatal depending on the severity of the defect, it's exact location in the GI tract and any other associated anomalies.
