Help baby Chad born with a rare genetic syndrome

Update posted by Tracey Classens On May 15, 2018

We have been so overwhelmed with such amazing support for Chad! So very blessed to have his story shared far and wide, and receive so much love, support, prayers and donations allowing us to push on forward. So thank you to everyone, words cannot describe!!

Last week we had the dreaded leg casts put on, as Chad was born with very high arched turned in feet, he needs leg casts for 3 weeks in order to straighten them out and stretch the ligaments. He smiled through it all until he realised he couldn't kick his legs (his favourite past time!) and then many meltdowns later and a sleepless night for us all, he adjusted.

For my first mothers day I was gifted with the most beautiful laugh from this boy as my amazing husband said "Happy Mothers day!". So blessed and well more tears later, my heart melts for this precious boy.

We are off to Johannesburg end of the month as the leg casts are removed to see a Craniofacial Surgeon and we are praying the 6 hour drive (thank you to my Dad for lending us your car!) will be worth it! We have forwarded all the scans and appointments up to date to the specialist and hope he can help us - so far this includes, ENT, Ophthalmologist, Paediatrician (amazing Dr Roos - who will be helping us manage the specialist visits), Cardiologist, Craniofacial team in Durban, Geneticist, Audiologist, and Orthopaedic surgeon.

It is only the beginning of our journey but already we have been blessed in so many other ways, it definitely takes a small town rather than a village to raise this boy but he is such a strength which keeps us going and we really are so grateful for all the support!
