In 2010 Liz and David Turnbull traveled to China to adopt three-year-old Grace. Expecting a happy healthy girl, Liz and David were shocked to find their new daughter in a full body cast.
Back home in Mississauga Grace was diagnosed with Osteogenesis Imperfecta
, a condition that causes extremely brittle bones and just picking her up could cause a break. For months they couldn’t hug their daughter and had to carry her around on a duvet cover. Today with the support of SickKids
Grace is gaining weight, is walking and beginning to run. Her on-going bone growth treatments and physio-therapy are helping Grace get stronger every day.
