Pregnancy is a very delicate period, and even if there are preventive measures that can be taken there are always unforeseeable complications that can compromise a baby's life at different levels. 

A case in point is Aldrin, an 11-year-old Thai boy, born with a congenital knee dislocation. In other words, both his knees developed in the opposite direction. The doctors who examined him marveled at how he was even able to move.

Congenital dislocation of the knee causes the knees to develop and bend in the opposite direction.

Due to the malformations with which he was born, Aldrin was teased by his peers and this caused him serious problems of social integration and personal development.

"When we saw his x-rays, we asked ourselves how the poor boy could even walk," say the doctors who treated him.

Two foundations, the Cure Foundation and the Tim Tebow Foundation, offered to operate on the boy's legs to restore his right to a healthy life.

A team of prestigious surgeons worked continuously for hours to correct and realign the young boy's joints, tendons, and femur bones. The operation, although very complicated, was blessed with complete success.

Today, Aldrin has started his rehabilitation program and has already taken his first steps.

It will be a demanding task, but for Aldrin, a new life has definitely begun in every respect!

Take heart, be strong, little warrior, you can do it!
