Brothers

Joshua and Caleb are two brothers who experience life in different ways. Josh is a happy and curious ten year old boy who was diagnosed with Congential Cytomegalovirus (CMV) and Spastic Quadriplegia Cerebral Palsy as infant. His CP affects his ability to move, hear, and communicate. Joshua’s brother, Caleb, is very active, which is one of the most obvious differences between the boys. Caleb loves to run around the house, while Josh uses a wheelchair to move around. Caleb communicates verbally, while Josh uses American Sign Language. As Caleb gets older, he is starting to better understand the differences between him and his brother. Their parents, Jamie and Ben, hope that Caleb will continue to take interest in helping and supporting Josh, but they are careful to avoid putting pressure on Caleb to do so. Although the family may seem different to those who do not know them, Jamie says they deal with the same joys and struggles of any ordinary family.
