Mile 99 – Liam. He is four years old and has DS + mild Cerebral Palsy, was born with TOF and AVSD and had open heart surgery at 7 weeks of age. He is non verbal, has never sat or stood on his own, stills takes formula from a bottle, has a severe allergy to milk casein, has acid reflux and chronic constipation and despite all of these challenges he wakes up every single day with a beautiful smile on his face. He is such a gift and I am better person for knowing him. The things that make Liam smile are “Masha and the Bear”, when he drops things on the floor and his own farts (not much unlike any boy!)
