Charlie was creative and imaginative from an early age, writing stories and performing. His passion for art, however, did not develop until Charlie was a teenager. Around the age of 16, Charlie began a slow decline that ultimately yielded a second diagnosis of Regression disorder. During those very challenging and dark years, painting was the one activity Charlie could find the energy to engage in.
Here’s Kitty!!! Kitty was born Sept 3, 2017. We found out at our 20 weeks scan that she had multiple heart defects and some type of Trisomy, later confirmed as 21, aka Down Syndrome. We then found out she had more heart defects and a stomach defect. I feared for her. Even taking a first breath, her body sounded too complex for this world.
