“My name is Fatima, I would like to share my story of resilience. After years of hoping to have a child naturally my husband Jaycee and I decided to finally seek out for help. Unfortunately at the young age of 26, I was diagnosed with low ovarian reserve, basically, I have low egg supply and only had a 5% chance of natural conception. This news devastated us and the only option to have a child naturally would be through In vitro fertilization (IVF) with only a 50 percent chance of success. After many tears and prayers later we decided to take that risk and try IVF and with the grace of God and science, we welcomed my son Cristiano at 4lb 14oz born 10-14-2014 who’s is currently 4! I can’t imagine my life without him. He completes our family. We are so lucky and blessed to have our little dude.” An amazing story of resilience told by @fatimamagg! We hope to inspire and encourage all of those who are battling any type of battle! Fenrici salutes your amazing perseverance and bravery!
This handsome boy is Exton, or as Exton’s mom calls him, “homie with an extra chromie”, welcomed into this world February 28th, 2017! Shortly after Exton was born, he had to get a NG (Nasogastric) tube which he had for a bit as he refused a bottle. Between potential fluid in his lungs, open heart surgery at a few months old, several moves to the CCU and more, Exton finally made it home August 16th, 2017! Exton has been a brave warrior since birth to now, including going to the Children’s Hospital of Alabama in 2019 for some sickness but he came back strong and is doing well!
There have been ups and downs, as there are with any pediatric hero, but it is clear how loved Exton is and how much he loves his family. Exton’s page, @extra_exton is filled with photos of Exton smiling ear to ear, but also real and vulnerable moments. We thank Exton’s mom for allowing us to share a small glimpse into who Exton is and we encourage you to find out more! Exton’s page is sure to bring a smile to your face and love to your heart.
