Ethan was born with charge syndrome and has been a patient under many different doctors since his birth. His major problem at birth was that he didnt have an anus hole! and had bowel problems inside which prompted an operation at 1 day old. He also had a large head because of cysts in his brain. But the only thing any scans showed before birth was a renal infection!

There is a strong possibility that Ethan is also some where on the autistic spectrum but the diagnosis is still up in the air at the moment. He is extremely clever, he learned to read well before the usual age and picks up tunes and plays them on his keyboard very easily,
We understand that although charge syndrome has given him many battles in his life he is blessed! proving the doctors wrong in as much as we were warned at his birth that he may not hear or see or walk!!! oh but if you could see him now a little live wire full of love and a fantastic sense of humour, he is his nanna's little treasure box and I love him dearly, he always makes me smile and I thank God that He is still doing a healing work in his life.
