Toddler Finally Heads Home from the Hospital for the Very First Time

This is one homecoming that's long overdue. 

Matteo was born with Congenital Myotonic Dystrophy, a disorder that causes progressive muscle weakness. He's been in a Missouri hospital since the day he was born. After spending more than a year in the hospital, this toddler finally got to go home for the very first time. 

"We've been waiting for this for a long, long time," Matteo's father told KMOV. "He finally gets to come home." 

The family won't be going it alone, as Matteo will have several nurses helping with his care.
