Elijah was born with Omhalocele, a condition that meant his organs remained on the outside of his body, he had two surgeries for the condition, and in January had his right foot and left leg amputated, and now, he has made his first step!
After several times of falling, he didn’t lose his faith, repeatedly saying ‘I got it’, he is so innocent and so brave, steadies himself again and pushes forward. What a gorgeous little boy, he shows us such sheer determination and strength that many adults could learn from.
Now his mother is raising money to pay for more therapy and equipment for her son through fundraising website gofundme. She has now raised about $55k.
