AIDEN'S JOURNEY: THE NEXT CHAPTER - In 2008, Taryn and Ricky Skees welcomed their second baby boy 5.5 weeks early, however that wasn’t the only surprise they received that night. The sounds of joy that normally fill a delivery room were replaced by confused gasps and an eerie silence. Ricky noticed something didn't look right with his son's hands and feet. A neonatologist told them that it appeared Aiden had something called Apert Syndrome. Aiden's hands looked as is if they were in little fists. His fingers and toes were fused together and the sutures of his skull had closed too early making his forehead protrude. A nurse gave the nervous parents a printout that gave information about Apert syndrome, a craniofacial condition that occurs in only 1 out of every 160,000 births. They learned their baby would require numerous surgeries, may have a poor quality of life and even recommended institutionalization. They were heartbroken – yet determined to fight for their son’s future.
