This is a story of a young boy at the Mary Rice Centre who made tremendous change in a very little time span. Richard is 4 years old which makes him the youngest child in Mary Rice currently,he was admitted in Mary Rice Centre on 11th january 2016 when he became part of the family. the boy is mentally fit, the only challenge that he has is physical, he has a condition called Hemiparesis,this is a condition which causes entire weakness of left or right of the body.
when he was admitted he could barely walk and even standing proved to be a challenge for him,then he started therapy sessions with the occupational therapist(O.T) at the centre three weeks ago, he had therapy sessions everyday for three weeks until this week on tuesday when he made his first steps. This was like a miracle that wasn’t expected to happen because last week he tried to move from the chair he was seated only to fall and hurt his head so bad.
His determination and trying finally payed off and us the Mary Rice family we can not be more grateful and thankful to God for a very skilled occupational therapist that has brought a lot of change to the Mary Rice Children. This was such a big success for him, the mother and the O.T for the improvement he had shown in a very short time.
