I have a friend whose child was born with cerebral palsy. It's hard, it's sooooo hard, but she coped. In addition to the basic requirements of a doctor in the summer she got up at 5 am and forced her boy to walk barefoot on the grass wet with dew, also they brought the sea pebbles and the boy had to walk on these stones too. It took her four years, so the diagnosis was removed. Now the boy is ok.
Actually this diagnos is not a doom. Do you remember Forest Gump?)
