Theme details

Child Interests

Aleja loves songs and her Winnie the Pooh.
Her favourite colours are yellow and pink.
Aleja adores rainbows and princesses - in particular rainbows as she is our rainbow.


Aleja was born in Feburary 2017.
We had a normal delivery with no problems. Shortly after birth I noticed she sounded very noisy when feeding and we were discharged. 3 weeks later she was going blue with some feeds and was spluttering and very noisy while feeding. She was later diagnosed with laryngomalacia. 3 days after an admission for this she stopped breathing at home and had a cardio-respiratory arrest. This resulted in her sustaining a severe brain injury which affects almost every part of her brain. We were given a very poor prognosis but although severely affected she is doing well. She is left totally blind and with severe cerebal palsy. She is 22months old and cannot roll sit or stand and has limited head control but has the best smile.
