Happy Birthday Lauryn!!!
When my daughter was 24 days old and I was leaving the hospital with her I was told that there was a 90% chance she would not live to see her 3rd birthday, she would be a vegetable, never sit, never walk, never talk - basically she would just whither away to nothing. Well, she's proved those doctors wrong!
Lauryn has endured her fair share of medical challenges, she's had 22 bouts of pneumonia, 2 collapsed lungs, many bouts of bronchitis, 5 surgeries... but no matter what, this child has kept going strong. She is social, loves to be around people, she loves to do her job at the day center she attends 4 days a week, she's known at the center as Miss Social Butterfly. She loves to dance, she loves her movies (typically horror) and Ferngully is her number one movie to watch.
Here are a few pictures of Lauryn for you to enjoy.
