Our family is me (Lisa), dad (Ricky), sisters Lakeesha and MaKayley. Rylee was born on 8-30-2008 at 32 weeks and was just a feed and grow baby until the ultrasound tech saw something on a scan. She was checking for brain bleeds and saw abnormalities. Rylee was diagnosed with bilateral closed lip schizencephaly. When we left the hospital, the doctors told us she would never do anything. As time went on, we did see she was delayed. She was diagnosed also with cerebral palsy and in the past 2 years epilepsy. We had very few words until she was nine. Now she can talk in sentences; it isn’t clear, but we know what she says. She is full care and Is in a powerchair. She loves music (especially one direction and Jonas brothers) and animals.
