Today we speak with Jessica Spinner of Citrus Park, mother of Mattingly Hope Spinner. Prior to being born nine weeks premature, tiny Mattie grew with little to no amniotic fluid. She was diagnosed with PVL and cerebral palsy. Last week the child whose chances of survival were 12 percent turned age 2.
