Photo close up of Quinns' smiling face

Quinns is a 4-year-old boy. He likes vehicles; trains (especially Thomas) and now helicopters! He loves to swim and play in the park with his friends. His favourite TV programme is the Octonauts and he loves to eat cake and custard (dairy free of course!) Above all else he adores his 8-year-old Big Sister.

He’s just like any other little boy except that he has quadriplegic athetoid cerebral palsy (CP). At the moment he’s unable to sit up without help (non-mobile) and has no easily recognisable words (non-verbal) but he definitely makes his feelings known!

This blog is a place to share our everyday family life, the challenges we face and hopefully raise some awareness of the issues surrounding disabled children. Before Quinns came along I really had no idea.
