2-Year-Old Who Overcame The Odds And Learned To Walk Inspires Millions

Written by Alicia F. Luke

“Roman is a two-year-old boy with a form of Spina Bifida called a Myelomeningocele. This condition causes him to have weakness in his legs. We were told that he would have minimal movement below his knees due to his lesion level. God has shown favor for this boy allowing him to actually start to walk assisted. First, with a walker and then in this video showing him starting to master his forearm crutches. He is excited and shares the great news with our puppy, Maggie. Roman’s story is especially special because his Mom had a fetal repair of his lesion in utero. That means at 25 weeks gestation they went in and did surgery and fixed his back and sewed her back up and kept her pregnant for three more months and then she had a second C-section at 36 weeks and 4 days. His dad is also a chiropractor who specializes in pediatrics which has helped him get tremendous results with chiropractic care. The reason it is important for us to share this video is because the majority of children with his diagnoses are terminated before birth. We wanted to show the world how great God is and how a child with Spina Bifida can live a happy life. We have gotten so many responses from parents of children with Spina Bifida that are so grateful that we were able to give them hope.”
