One-year-old Veronica is the youngest in a family of four children. While most children Veronica’s age are able to stand, Veronica has yet to do so due to severe rotation of both of her feet at the ankle joint (more commonly known as “club feet”).

Doctors are concerned that if Veronica continues to experience developmental delays in standing, she will have difficulty walking for the rest of her life.
