Although Christian is only ten months old, he has continued to amaze me, his doctors, and his therapists with his accomplishments. Christian had an in utero stroke and as a result, has been diagnosed with mild cerebral palsy (CP), affecting his right side.

Christian is now trying to sit up. When he was 7 1/2 months old, he raised his right (affected) arm and sucked his thumb for the first time. I can't express how happy I was; of how it felt to know that this is a sign of hope that everything will be okay. Since then, he has noticed his affected hand and will just stare at it like, "Hey! Where did you come from?"

Christian just learned to say DaDa and BaBA, and he has learned to play patty-cake. He even tries to use his right hand for part of the game. I can't express how happy and proud I am of him! ~ Christian's mom
