Biography

Within days of Teddy being born we were told he was going to need surgery on his heart. He spent the first 2 weeks of his life in an incubator, surrounded by wires and tubes, being prodded, and most certainly not having all the cuddles he would have had if he wasn’t in there!

When Teddy came home we thought that would be the end of that little ‘blip’, however it quickly became apparent that Teddy wasn’t developing at the expected rate, though he has always had a cheeky and bright personality. He was unable to move himself, made very little noise other than when he cried, and found feeding to be very distressing. Just before his first Christmas we were told that the reasons for Teddy’s delays were because he had a rare chromosome duplication (9q34). We were devastated and terrified about what this meant for his future.

The outlook we were given originally was not particularly bright. Teddy has certainly continued to progress in his own time. However over the years Teddy has taken great pleasure in proving this prediction to be wrong! He communicated using makaton for the first 3-4 years of his life, said his first word not long before he was 4 and took his first independent step aged 4, all things we were told may not be possible. Although Teddy does face challenges with his mobility due to his cerebral palsy, he has been able to start school in a mainstream setting with additional support. He is incredibly bright, loves reading and wowing us all with his maths and is generally doing very well at school.

Teddy is a very kind, brave and incredibly determined little boy, he has faced challenges and pain that many people don’t have to face in their lives. As his parents we are so very proud of him, and so thankful to him for teaching us so much.
