Our daughter was born with a chromosomal defect called Ring 18. During her first year, she was very hypotonic (low tone), and had poor eyesight, hearing, and sense of touch. She had little mobility and no eye contact until the age of nine months. She also had chronic inflammation in her middle ears.
Since she would never get the necessary brain stimulation in a governmental institution, my husband and I took The Family Hope Center seminar when she was seven and a half months old. Learning about brain function and mastering tools to help her was the best thing we could have ever done for her and our family. When we returned home to Denmark, we started her neurological program.
Later, her first CFT session at The Family Hope Center turned out to be another revelation with great results. As a mother and a physical therapist, I traveled to Philadelphia to take Dr. Barry Gillespie’s CFT seminar. At home, I gave her one or two sessions a week, which stopped her ear infections. Later, we saw an improvement in her mobility and cognitive abilities.
After four-and-a-half years on the program, we have a child who can see, hear, and has a normal sense of touch. She is still slightly hypotonic, but is capable of walking 25 yards. She eats on her own and helps with her personal hygiene. She is a very happy child who smiles, laughs, and enjoys good company and social games. Intellectually, she understands everything that we say and has a complete awareness of the world around her. She loves to read and is fascinated with the alphabet. Linguistically, she even says a few words. The Family Hope Center programs have helped her become the girl that she is today.
