Health knowledge made personal
A Single Mom raising a special child and trying my best to balance real life with "what ifs". My life is full and often pretty crazy dealing with a Special Needs child and all that comes along with it, but I wouldn't have it any other way. Austin was born in Nov 2007 at 36 weeks. He was diagnosed with Branchio-Oto-Renal (Melnick-Fraser) syndrome. From Birth to 3 months he struggled but was "attachment" free. Since then he has earned himself some pretty fancy equipment & technology that help get him through the day. To date he sports a Tracheostomy, Gastrostomy tube, BAHA and is learning Sign Language. As you can see he does not let any of his "issues" stop him from moving forward and having fun. He is truly an inspiration and a fighter.
