Hunter has been diagnosed with Autism, Global Learning Delay, Seizures. And still, he is a true miracle and blessing!
Hunter’s parents describe him as a true blessing. His parents describe the nine years it took to be blessed with him as their miracle rainbow baby, meaning his birth followed the loss of another. They say he wakes up every day with the greatest laugh, and a beaming smile. He has no words, but is a happy and healthy boy. Because they were blessed with Hunter after such a long journey, his mom and dad have the greatest belief, hopes and dreams for Hunter’s future.
Although non-verbal, Hunter understands a great deal. For example, he understands bedtime routines and follows instructions. He has had a chance to experience the use of an assistive communication device outside the home and his parents are excited to see how much more progress he will experience with a device of his own.
