Paxtyn is diagnosed with Helsmoortel-Van Der Aa syndrome, Neurodevelopmental disorder. If I were to describe my child with his disability I would say that he is a very bright, smart and happy kid and no matter what life throws at him he is always smiling. Advice I would give to help other parents better understand my child is, my child is just like every other kid. He is full of energy and just wants to be treated like a normal child would.

Paxtyn has to use a wheelchair or walker to get around and works hard at therapies during the week. If theres one thing he loves the most it is the tricycle. Paxtyn has a twin brother who loves going outdoors and riding bikes that we would love for both of our boys to be able to ride bikes together while out on family walks.
