My middle child was born we found out he had spina bifeda.

2 days later we were taken to children’s hospital and saw the spina bifeda team. At this stage we were advised about the disability, that he may never walk, go to toilet, we had to wait for 10 months for a MRI to get the full diagnosis and form off the disability he had,.

He had mycomslygasol form and tethered cord so at 13 months they operated and disconnected his spinal cord from his lump on his bottom and closed the bottom of his spine up. He also has a butterfly vertebrae. He started walking a week after surgery, he has defied the odds and is nearly 7 and now plays football.

He’s our miracle child.

  • How beautiful your story is. It’s amazing when we as mums are pregnant have these great visions of our children. Then the miracle is brought to us, a life, a gift and then we learn it might not be what we had envisiaged. But it becomes our journey and we learn what real accomplishments are.

  • What a wonderful joy that he gets to experience the miracle of walking. I am sure that he will be able to enjoy being a child and be an inspiration for other parents of kids with disabilities and the kids themselves everywhere.

  • Wow how great is that hes walking. My daughter has a rare syndrome and we were told she could be in a wheel chair by 10 years of age as it attacks her muscles. Shes now 18 and still walking. Shes been in cast both legs, had acupuncture, two head operations, growth retardation, one side of her body is shorter than the other, lots of physio, podiatry work, laser treatment. We keep going i dont know where we find the energy. Lots of stretches, and massages. My daughter is in the australian squad and state squad for lawn bowls. Go kidsssss.
