Faces of Spina Bifida: Meet Alex!

I know a few sets of twins where one child has Spina Bifida and the other does not.  You are going to meet one set of twins today!

This is Alex! 

This is Alex with his twin brother Nicholas.  Can you just imagine how busy their parents are?!  I know these boys keep mom and dad on their toes!
Alex and his brother were born at only 28 weeks gestation on May 2, 2009 and weighing in at less than 2 pounds each.  So not only did Alex's body have to deal with the issues that come with Spina Bifida but his body also had to deal with being a preemie.  Both boys were in the NICU for more than 100 days a piece!  A rough start for both boys but they look great now!

You can read more about Alex and his brother Nicholas but visiting their blog: Our double blessings.
