A perfect pregnancy ended in a difficult birth. Fetal hypoxia, emergency Caesarian operation, and, finally, the long-awaited Marta’s cry. Alive! Later it will become known about multiple developmental defects. But that comes later. Four months of a happy life at home, and suddenly a sharp deterioration in Marta's condition: pneumonia, sepsis, aeropleura. Two months of artificial lung ventilation, two cardiac arrests, and a week in a coma. Six months in the hospital – and a long-awaited return home.

Marta lost all the previously acquired skills – she stopped holding her head and even swallowing on her own. At the same time, multiple congenital malformations of the brain, heart, and kidneys have been identified. For six months now, parents have been trying to find the cause of congenital abnormalities: but so far it has not been possible to find the broken gene that is why there is no exact diagnosis.

Marta is a year and a half now. Most recently, she learned to sit down and crawl on her own, the first sounds and babbling appeared. Marta began to control her hands, and now she is all the time trying to grab the tail of a cat Jesse running by. This tremendous shift in the development of the girl took place after undergoing a course of rehabilitation at the centre "Krok za krokom". At home, Marta does her homework from the centre every day, as well as takes massage sessions and does physiotherapy exercises to consolidate the acquired skills and go further for new ones. Marta has one peculiarity - synchronicity in the movement of her limbs: if she does something with one hand, then the second one tries to do the same. This complicates the learning process, but does not stop it!

It is impossible to go back in time and fix a broken gene. But many mistakes of nature can be corrected while the child is still small. And the last Marta’s rehabilitation proves it. But the parents' income is incommensurate with the costs required to rehabilitate a sick child.

Marta is surrounded by an aura of love between her parents and her elder sister, but without rehabilitation in specialized centres, she will not only stop developing, but she will also lose all the acquired skills. Marta will please with new successes; you just need to give her a chance. A chance to have a healthy childhood.
