This child will change the world. My Son will move mountains. So far he has shocked everyone with his amazing abilities as a child with special needs. It has been shown that Warren has Hypoplasia of the Corpus Callosum.
Agenesis of the corpus callosum (ACC) is a rare birth defect (congenital disorder) in which there is a complete or partial absence of the corpus callosum. It occurs when the corpus callosum, the band of white matter connecting the two hemispheres in the brain, fails to develop normally, typically during pregnancy. The Corpus Callosum could be completely missing or partially grown.
Every child with ACC will develop in a different way. Most delays will present themselves in elementary school and in middle school. Warren went from low birth weight, disfigured ears, wide set eyes, and a number of suspicions such as his brain stopped growing, he could be blind, deaf, low muscle tone…
So far… I just see absolute beauty and amazement. Warren is strong, he can see, he can hear, and he recognizes my voice and face. He calms down right when he gets into my arms. He knows me as his Mother. He is such an easy, sweet, happy baby.
3 Families walked away from Warren in the hospital because they were nervous that they could not take on a child with such special needs. We understand how hard that must have been for them to make that decision. Special needs can be absolutely terrifying! I know when we were first introduced to the idea of a child with special needs we were in shock and honestly… in tears. Had we not experienced the journey of Jack, we would not have been able to open our minds to Warren.
I am just so thankful that we have the honor and privileged to watch this little man change the world!
Whatever the diagnosis of this child… he can and will change the world and as his advocate I will stand by his side through it all. I will make sure he has every opportunity that Scarlett has! ACC is not a death sentence. ACC is not the end of someones future. People with ACC can live normal lives.
Im just so excited watch him do it all and more!!
