Birthdate: August 16, 2007
Austyn was born August 16, 2007. He was born with a congenital pigment disorder. Austyn arrived into our care August 2, 2013 for initial treatment for malnourishment due to severe eating difficulties. After nearly two months of careful nourishment and therapy, Austyn showed remarkable improvements and nearly doubled in weight, gaining 2.1kg in the first two weeks! We have been delighted to watch him gain weight and strength and personality. Austyn is a very special little boy and we feel fortunate to be able to help him. We look forward to seeing more changes in his life and hope that he has a healthy and happy future.
