Samuel's Hemophilia Journey:
Samuel was brought home in April of 2016 after being adopted from China by his parents. His parents knew he had a disorder that made him bruise easily. While they were in China, Sam had many joint bleeds in his ankle and knee and was unable to walk. He was taken to Nationwide Children’s Hospital for testing and discovered he had severe hemophilia type A. Samuel needs infusions twice a week to prevent injury and bleeding. At first he went to the hospital for infusions, then he had a home health nurse come. Last Thanksgiving, his dad started doing the infusions on his own. His 12 year old sister has also learned how to infuse. Samuel doesn’t have a port, so finding his vein to infuse him can be difficult. He as adjusted well and is so brave! His three sisters adore him and his parents couldn’t imagine their family without him!
