Baby Ivie hits another milestone, she’s three years old!

The now toddler Ivie celebrated with family and friends Sunday at the Fortress of Fun playground in Newburgh.

Ivie was born with Gastrocesis and has been in and out of the hospital most of her short life. Her mother, Kara Duncan, donated part of her liver and intestines to Ivie in hopes of nursing her back to health.

Now her mother is thrilled to say Ivie is climbing, walking, and talking like a normal little girl, “Each day with her is pretty amazing, you know cause she sees new things, I mean it’s like everyday she learns something, for her to be here is a miracle, and everyday with her is a miracle.”

Ivie just completed her first steps therapy sessions, and the family is considering enrolling her in pre-school this fall.
