Baby's first steps!!! When Ronnie joined our family almost 7 months ago, he came with a walker and a wheelchair. He didn't have the strength in his legs to stand though.
First his physical therapist tried traditional AFOs (ankle foot orthotics), but they still did not provide enough support for his hips and legs.
The solution was to order full braces, which we picked up last week. And tonight at therapy, he took his first steps!!
The braces and the walker still need a few adjustments, but I predict my handsome boy will be dancing the night away at the school dances this year!
