Lucy has recently began to sit up on a bench all by herself. She also has about the straightest posture of any kid we've ever seen, so she's expecting a trophy for that soon. We have been working to get her to bare more weight into her knees and ankles, so that we can just skip the crawling phase altogether and go straight to qualifying for the 100m sprint.
At this time, Lucy is busy at her coffee table office, arranging similar shaped blocks into buckets. Her secretary urges you to leave a message after the beep.
Lucy Kate Hopkins
This is the story of Lucy, delivered 10 weeks premature, weighing only 2lbs. She was born with Downs Syndrome and multiple congenital heart defects, spending 75 days in the NICU. She has underwent two open heart surgeries in August 2009 and June 2010 to repair her Atrioventricular (AV) Canal Defect, Ventricular septal defect, double outlet right ventricle, mitral valve and extra superior vena cava. We hope she touches your heart as much as she has touched ours.
