MATIAS & MARIO :: NON-VERBAL, CEREBRAL PALSY, DELAYED DEVELOPMENT

Matias
Matias and his twin brother Mario were born at 28 weeks. Matias weighed 1 pound 14 ounces at birth and required heart surgery, continuous oxygen and a colostomy bag for many months. He needed to stay connected to a monitor because he would stop breathing.
Matias is now three years old and such a sweet boy. Although he is non-verbal he is very expressive and able to communicate in his own way. He is starting to stand and walk with assistance. He can crawl around and continues to get stronger by attending physical therapy on a regular basis.
Matias is an absolute love! After his session was over Matias made it known he wanted get in my car and come home with me. Since I couldn’t fit another car seat, I settled for a big hug and managed to snap a picture with my two new buddies!

Mario
Mario and his twin brother Matias we born at 28 weeks. Mario weighed 1 pound 9 ounces at birth and required heart and eye surgery. Mario needed to stay connected to oxygen for seven months before his lungs were strong enough for him to breath on his own.
Mario is now three years old and able to sit on his own and is starting to scoot around. He is still gaining strength to support himself and continues to attend physical therapy on a regular basis. Mario does not talk but is very expressive.
