Lucas has CP resulting from a stroke at birth. He likes balloons, glow sticks, and 80s movies.
Lucas had a stroke sometime right before or at birth, born at 41 weeks gestation from a normal pregnancy. MRI showed 45% damage and we as parents were given a very low set of expectations. Today at 3 years old, he has a growing vocabulary and is becoming more physically adaptive every day. I wish parents were told that CP is not a death sentence and that these kids will grow into their own amazing personalities.
