Meet 3-year-old Leonardo who loves playing with his older brothers and helping mom by letting everyone know what needs to get done.
Leonardo was the second preemie born to the Velazquez family, but he had the added title of “micro” and spent 125 days in the neonatal intensive care unit. Initially, the family received support for the care their son needed, but when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, everything stopped.
Leonardo’s mom, Laura was concerned because the family had little in the way of financial resources and found it difficult to navigate care over the internet. But Laura is a believer in early intervention, so when Leonardo was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, she struck out on a journey for support.
