Emmanuel's Amazing Story

March 5, 2013
 
Three-year old Emmanuel was born on February 15, 2010, with Spina Bifida and multiple physical disabilities, including bilateral clubbed feet, a dislocated hip, stiff joints and the absence of neuromuscular control below the knees (paralysis).  His parents were told that his chances of walking unassisted were slim.
 
However, with months of ankle and hip casting, braces, surgery, physical therapy through the California Children's Services program and his determined spirit, Emmanuel learned to overcome his mountain of obstacles.
