Default Adoption

Hi there, I'm new at this, but very excited to be here. My family and I are adopting a beautiful baby boy who has spina bifida/hydrocephalus.

*He is such a wonderful part of our lives, and I know I'll learn lots from others who have gone through what our little one will go through. He has a lower thoracic lesion and has no movement or sensation ,as far as we are able to tell, below his lower abdomen. We are presently catheterizing him every 3 hours. He has regular PT and OT as well as being followed by the Early Childhood development program. I feel that we are well supported in our community, and Bloorview has been a great resource for us as well.

*Babe is 8 months old now and we are always looking for new advice to make sure we are doing what's best for him. He is very active and bright, he is trying to roll but hasn't quite made it on a consistent basis yet. I'm looking forward to learning from all of your experiences!!!
