A little joy on Renee's Challenge is sweet Hayley:

Girl, born April 2010
Diagnosis: organic lesion of the central nervous system as a result of neuroinfection, atonic-astatic syndrome, severe delay of psychological and motor development

 Hayley has CP, caused by an infection in infancy.  She is still so young, she can get lots of early intervention to reach her potential!   Look, she is sitting up well, as well as playing with toys.

In June 2017 I see her in a tutu, dancing with her friends at the end-of-year ballet recital.  This is her last year of therapy, as her dancing and gymnastics regimen has greatly improved her muscle tone and coordination.  She hasn't had a seizure in over a year, although she will continue to provide her teachers with an Epipen "just in case" until her pediatrician gives the all-clear.  As she leaps through the air and prances on her tiptoes, her parents, grandparents and siblings clap enthusiastically, snapping pictures of their beautiful, graceful angel girl!
