Valter was born in 2016 and is the only one in Denmark with the Mabry syndrome.
His illness presents many challenges such as treatment-resistant epilepsy, lack of muscle tone and frequent infectious diseases.
Valter gets food and drink through his mic-key probe and uses the cross and leg splints (orthoses) when he sits up.
Valter is limited by his cognitive abilities, but he clearly recognizes his family and the people he associates with regularly. He is determined and certainly has his preferences.
Valter loves to take a shower, watch TV and share an ice cream with his older sister.
Emma was born in 2018 with Schinzel-Giedion syndrome, which causes epilepsy, eating problems and cognitive retardation.
Emma loves to get a bath in a tub and to feel the wind in her face.
Magnus was born prematurely in August 2016 - 11 weeks early.
This resulted in 2 cardiac arrests, which today means that Magnus suffers from Cerebral Palsy (spastic paralysis) to a severe degree, epilepsy and is motor retarded.
Magnus sits in a wheelchair and, despite his challenges, is an incredibly fun-loving boy who loves time with his 4 siblings.
He enjoys playing Playstation with his older brother or visiting grandma with his little sister and mom.
Magnus loves strawberries, Kinder chocolate and not least his iPad and TV.
Ziva was born 10 weeks early and was first diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy when she was 3 years old. Unfortunately, she forgot to breathe twice in the first few days of her life, when the doctors had to come in and resuscitate her.
Currently, Ziva's main problem is her legs. She cannot walk without a walker and otherwise she is in a wheelchair.
Ziva is a fun-loving girl with a very strong will and sometimes even stubborn. She loves to play with her little sister Ziff, who is just one year younger, and also loves listening to music, doing creative things with her mom and looking at her iPad.

She was born by emergency caesarean section due to lack of oxygen. She was then put on cooling therapy for three days, but was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy (CP) at 7 months old.
Isabella has severe CP but is a cognitively bright girl who will start special school in August 2024.
She enjoys horseback riding, yoga and is an incredibly happy and smiley girl who enjoys socializing.
When VALE Designs meets Isabella for photoshoots, she is a real 'lens louse' who keeps smiling at the camera even when tiredness sets in.
Liana was born in January 2019.
When she was 1 year old, she was diagnosed with Joubert syndrome, which means Liana has a congenital malformation of the cerebellum.

Right now, Liana is learning how to say monosyllabic words.
Liana loves horseback riding and yoga, is an incredibly shy but very smiley girl and is highly motivated by praise.
