Destination Home family 480

Baby Bjorn fought his way into this world 7 weeks early at 4lbs 4oz to a mom (Bianka) who begged and prayed for 15 years to hold a baby all her own. During the unexpected and difficult pregnancy, Bjorn was diagnosed with gastroschisis (intestines, liver, stomach born outside the body). He was a warrior from the moment he took his first breath during his C-section delivery. He endured respiratory therapy, a full repair where his intestines were put back into his body, regulating his own body temp, feeding tubes and speech therapy for oral support, physical and occupational therapy to support his growth and development, NEC (bacterial invasion causing cellular death and necrosis of the colon and intestine), brachial plexus injury causing herbs palsy, surgery to get a g-button, and so many infections due to having a compromised immune system. 

Through all of this Bjorn has always been such a happy, fun loving, spirited baby boy. His smile quite literally touches your soul and can light up any room. Bjorn’s parents were so very excited to bring him home! Most recently Bjorn is starting to crawl and although he still has a strong oral aversion he recently found his love for marshmallows. He is so sassy and such a loving little person with his own happy personality now.
