I saw this amazing story and it touched my soul with joy
This is Maddy. Her Instagram is AmazinglyMaddy and she is exactly that! Maddy was born at 27 weeks and had sustained a grade 4 brain hemorrhage at some point before birth. To this day we don’t know how or why. She has overcome so many obstacles. Today, she is a spunky 6-year-old with cerebral palsy who has a wicked sense of humor and loves LOL surprise dolls. We love meeting families with kiddos going through unique medical and special needs journeys.
