The story of us... How do you even begin to sum up your life in a few paragraphs? It is a daunting task. I guess I will start by telling you what I think you should know.
Our life was much like a fairy-tale... we met at a young age, we were spared heartbreak growing up, our families are healthy, we have amazing parents and siblings, we had wonderful high school and college experiences, we have been lucky enough to live in a city, by the ocean and near family. We have been able to travel and see amazing parts of the world. We have a wonderful marriage and we have been blessed with opportunities our whole lives. We had our first son and living on top of the world. I suppose you could say we were use to getting what we wanted. Spoiled, even.
Our world was rocked when for the first time, we heard devastating news that we couldn't negotiate, talk our way out of or change. When we found out our baby girl at 33 weeks would be born with dwarfism, it was the first time in our lives where we didn't get "our way." We quickly decided to trust God and understand that "our way" may not align with "His way" but He knows best and everything would be okay.
As a part of this journey, my husband and I have committed ourselves to serious change. In the midst of living the high life, we forgot about the simple things, true happiness and celebrating differences. We are learning and growing every day in the depths and corners of our character. We are challenging ourselves to do better, to be better and make the world a better place for our children.
Thank you for finding us, following us and loving us. I hope we have captured your heart and you allow us to settle right in. Come along this journey with us as we spread the awareness to dwarfism and most importantly... the message of love.
