Giggling away as he enjoys some playful rough and tumble with his twin brother Solomon – a cheeky grin etched on his little face – Sebastian Brokenshire-Dyke appears to be just like any other boisterous 2-year-old.
A happy little chap with a mop of white blonde hair, he’s “fiercely determined, full of energy and very loveable”, according to mum Lorna, “although obviously I’m biased,” she laughs, rolling her eyes, before reciting a sweet story about the time he managed to raise a laugh from a “grumpy old man” at the doctors’ surgery.
“I thought if he can crack him, he can crack anyone,” Lorna chuckles.
Seb’s zest for life is really quite remarkable, because underneath the smile he’s hiding a condition which makes daily life a constant struggle.
Seb has cerebral palsy (CP) spastic diplegia, and while his twin brother enjoys playing in the park, splashing in puddles and kicking footballs, Seb can only watch, confined by a condition which means he can’t stand or walk independently.
