Today we have a story about a cute little fella named, Alex! Here is what his mother, Holli had to say about him:
I've been reading along with the inspiring stories every day and have been meaning to write one about one of the most important people in my life, my son.
Alex is two and a half years old. He and his twin brother are the light of my life!!! They had a difficult start in this world and Alex more so. We learned during our pregnancy that Alex's spine didn't form correctly and that he had Spina Bifida. I worried so much about what his life would be like, having a disability. Then just a couple weeks later we found out that the boys growth had slowed way down and that my placenta wasn't functioning well causing blood flow problems. We had multiple ultrasounds and stress tests per week and we were told to be prepared to lose both of the boys; That certainly put Spina Bifida in perspective. We gained strength then that we could deal with whatever came our way as long as we had our boys at the end of this journey.
If you meet Alex now two and a half years later, he is no less inspiring. He has a very "thoughtful take it all in" persona when meeting any one new. But it doesn't take long before he's batting his eyes and throwing on the charm.
