Fourteen years ago, on Sept. 9, Paris Stone was born.
But, according to his grandmother, Carol Adams, it was soon clear that Stone wasn’t developing like the other children.
And the family soon found out why: cerebral palsy.
Cerebral palsy is “a disorder of movement, muscle tone or posture that is caused by an insult to the immature, developing brain, most often before birth,” according to the Mayo Clinic.
For Stone, the affliction would affect many aspects of his everyday life.
