Isaac was only with us for 24 weeks, but he changed everything. We are still discovering the incredible lessons this special little boy had to teach us. Sadly, we lost a second time at only five weeks. Our second son was born October 29, 2010 with no signs of the defect that took his brother.
Living life when I'm not just surviving it. Smiling while I'm crying. Laughing, always. I'm 33 and married to the most wonderful man I could ever hope for. I have a genetic disorder called Ectrodactyly, but I show no symptoms. Our first son, however, was severely affected. When I'm not writing, I'm slinging coffee, making fun of movies and sometimes hiking. Lately I'm also missing sleep and compulsively checking that my newborn son is breathing while he sleeps.
