With mom, Gwen Mayo, holding her hand, Sophia happily walks with the support of leg braces, defying an early prognosis that she would never walk or smile.
After a rough time at the beginning, Bella, left, and Sophia eventually got to go home, where they continue to make progress.
Proud parents, Gwen Mayo and Ryan Kedzierski recently celebrated Bella, left, and Sophia’s second birthday.
At birth, Bella and Sophia weighed slightly over a pound.
The early days were tough for Bella, and her sister Sophia.
Sophia can now be seen smiling and swinging.
Bella cheers for her dad’s favorite team on the right.
