Olivia was born on September 19th, 2017, a blond pumpkin weighing 3.300 kg. For us, mum, Sara, dad, Simone and her older sister Vittoria, it was an incredible emotion. A year after, little Mattia Francesco arrived and completed our family. We were happy and it looked like nothing could upset us.
Unfortunately, we were wrong.
What looked like clumsy and awkward imperfections of a toddler taking her first steps, turned out to be the unmistakable symptoms of a bigger problem. But never would we have imagined how big.
We started going through visits, exams, tests, hospitalizations, with increasing fear.
