Nathaniel Rentzell's Bio
Welcome to Nathaniel’s website! He lives with his parents and his brothers, Garrett and Cody in Hagerstown, MD. Nathaniel has spastic diplegic Cerebral Palsy, having been born prematurely. His body doesn’t always want to cooperate with him being such an active little boy, but he’s very resilient and works very hard in therapy to strengthen his body. He also struggles to speak but he uses additional means of communicating, including sign language and an iPad with a special app. Despite the challenges he faces, he’s a very happy boy with a fantastic sense of humor, a big heart and the determination to never let anything slow him down!
Nathaniel is in the Life Skills program at Bester Elementary school where he’s made lots of good friends and has really come out of his shell, allowing his personality to really shine! He loves trains, pepperoni, video games and playing in water! He enjoys horseback riding to stretch his hips & legs as some fun therapy!
He and his family are so grateful for all the wonderful people that hold them in prayer, bless them with such generous gifts, and help Nathaniel grow stronger every day! His momma has been really, really sick, and as she’s learning to adjust to life with new limits and challenges, many people have stepped up to help the family. They thank God for each and every one of you!
