Meet Giovanni. He has severe brain damage due to error during deliver and may never sit, speak, eat as we do or be mobile on his own. Despite his misfortune...he has the brightest smile always and loves to laugh! We love to keep his spirits up always as he keeps a smile on our faces.

We are asking for your support with a small contribution to provide special equipment that will improve his quality of life! He deserves it and my family will appreciate it sooooo much. One device we are really excited about is the Upsee!! A mom's invention is giving parents hope that their wheelchair-bound children will know what it's like to walk. The Firefly UpSee is a harness that allows children to stand upright, attached to their parents by a series of straps, with their feet fastened into rubber shoes. As the parent walks, the child is able to move along with them. Amazing!!! The simplest things we are able to do are taken for granted everyday. Something like this to Giovanni is huge! He isn't even able to sit upright nor hold his head up for a long period of time. To be able to use this device and walk with him is like a dream. We are looking into therapeutic chairs, toys and mats also and have begun purchasing with hopes of improvement of Gio's motor skills. Thank you for your support and thank you for learning about our little angel. ;) (I included a picture of Giovanni and the device mentioned to give you a better idea )
