Well let's begin with saying I never planned on any children. As life goes I was shocked by my suprise of being pregnant. As a single mom I had a very good pregnancy and went full term. No issues what so ever. The day of labor was not so good. My doctor recommended being induced. This did not agree with my little guy. Labor was long and the cord was not in a good position. 12 hours later my little guy was born bit immediately taken to the nicu. There he stayed for 23 days. The determination was that he had a stroke while being born and had 3 spots on his brain. The first week he was kept sedated because of his seizures. No one was aloud to hold him including myself for 23 days. It was heart breaking. As soon as things got under control he got to come home. He was put on the early intervention program inwhich he is still on. As he grew his motor functions were pretty typical however speech hasn't come so easy. My lil guy for a to speech therapy twice a week, ot twice a week, and pt once a week. He also receives a weekly visit from becep. He is diagnosed now with autism. Even with this he is by far one of the most beautiful and out going lil guy. He loves being outside with animals and can be so funny! I dont consider this a disability for he would not be who he is without it. We have a different road to take then some but nothing we can't handle. That's my short story.
