Our five-year-old daughter Addie acquired a brain injury in 2014. Life has certainly not been the same since. Living with daily, uncontrollable seizures and a complete change in personality makes family life more challenging, especially for Addie’s twin sister Izzy.¬†Finding the right kind of support has been difficult and there aren’t enough facilities to give Addie the life she deserves. She doesn’t attend any after-school/weekend clubs because of her complex needs and her life is markedly different to that of her sister’s. it’s heart-breaking.¬† My hope for the future is that one day there will be more opportunities for awesome children like Addie to excel.
