Meet eight-year-old Genesis. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and Periventricular leucomalacia . The latter is a disease that ultimately causes severe brain malformations and lifelong struggles. Genesis tries walking, but she can only take a few steps. Genesis, however, is determined to stand without assistance. Her speaking ability is also limited to approximately 10 words. Genesis is very happy despite these and other challenges.
Genesis is very playful and outgoing. She listens to music and tries singing and bobbing her head to upbeat songs. Genesis also loves playing with balloons, but she is mesmerized by watching them floating in the wind. Most of all, she is social; during winter break, Genesis was eager for school to begin and to see her classmates. Meet Genesis and discover somebody amazing. Just ask her mom, who says, “Genesis is the most beautiful girl in the world. She is my life and everything to me.”
