Meet the Anttila Family



Westynn was our first miracle baby born on January 9th 2016 after years of praying and fertility medication. (Her sister Harrow entered 2.5 years later) Westynn's entrance to life was a rough one, but after quite a bit of panic and distress she finally emerged and soon after recovered from the traumatic experience. She was a perfect baby, calm, quiet, slept soundly.


The first thing we noticed was her eyes, they seemed to always be crossed, but her pediatrician assured us it was normal for infants and that they would eventually straighten. At 6 months old she was meeting zero milestones, and that is when the real concern started to set in. We started seeing a team of specialists at 7 months old including a developmental pediatrician, physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech therapist, neurologist, and geneticist. We did MRIs, blood work, more blood work, and more blood work. Nobody seemed to have any answers. Her symptoms mimicked cerebral palsy, but there were no findings to confirm
