In May of 2007 Oli was born with severe bilateral microphthalmia. Her eyes did not develop rendering her totally blind. She was diagnosed with a gene deletion, OTX 2, when she was 2 years old. She is one of only 15 kids in the world known to have this deletion. In March of 2011 she was diagnosed with autism. In October of 2011 she also started having seizures. Oli is now 5 years old. Although she is significantly developmentally delayed and non verbal she has taught me more about myself than I would have ever thought possible. She is a beautiful, sweet, stubborn, curious, brave little girl who illuminates the beauty in everyone she meets. She really is a very special little girl.
