Oliver was born after having suffered a stroke while in his mother's womb. The resulting brain injury is called Dysautonomia (Autonomic Dysfunction). Oliver is completely blind, and his underdeveloped brain stem makes basic physical functions a challenge. In spite of all this, he is a happy, go-lucky, twelve-year-old boy. His mom wants people to meet the real Oliver, not just his medical hardships. Part of the "Our Special Life" series.
