Meet Zoe.  She was born to a family in the USA.  She was born with the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck.    She was also diagnosed with hypotonia, or low muscle tone.

Peppy lives in an orphanage.  He has no loving parents.  He likely has spent little time until recently outside of his crib.  Peppy began receiving some physical therapy and is now able to stand, sit stably and shows very good potential to gain strength!
