My daughter turned 12 on wed and has seere dyskinetic quadriplegic cerebral palsy. She was born at 27 weks to a heroin user and I had her on her 2nd birthday. She can do nothing at all--cannot sit roll talk use her hands etc but is a bright cheerful cheeky preteen! She also has cortical isual impairment so the main challenge in life is keeping her from getting bored. She is totally dependent on gastrostomy feeding as she has a silent aspiration. Despite all these problems she loes life and lives it to the full.

hi iam the mum of a 3yr old little boy who has quad cp, chronic lung disease and he is gastrostomy fed. he was born in poor condition and had to be resusatated for 12mins he went straight into special care he finally came home after 4 months. he was over 2 before he could sit unaided, he charges around in a walking frame watch your toes! is an absolute handful but i feel iam a better, stronger person for having been blessed by my little boy! he has taught me sooo much!
I never thought it would happen to me.
