Our Journey

We decided to create a blog so we could share with family and friends about "our journey". Our son Noah is 4 years old and he is the constant light in our world. He was born with a rare genetic disorder called Rubinstein Taybi Syndrome.. Life has not always been easy but Noah has taught us how to be courageous. We are so proud of his accomplishments the past four years. He is beautiful, funny, courageous and strong. We feel so blessed God has chosen us to raise Noah.. We also hope that new parents receiving an RTS diagnosis will find comfort in our words. Nicholas is the perfect addition to our family. God has once again blessed us with a amazing, beautiful little boy. We are so comforted knowing that Noah now has a little brother. Life is beautiful having these two angels in our world.

Noah and Rocky

Here are some pictures of Noah and our dog Rocky. Noah crawls around after Rocky for a good part of the day. I have to admit our dog is so patient and loving when it comes to Noah and any kids that are around. He will be 10 in November and he was our baby before Noah was born (along with our other dog we had to give away Jake.) Here is a little note from Noah to Rocky.

Dear Rocky dog,
Thank you for letting me pull on your ears. You don't even get mad at me.
Thank you for letting me pull on your gums when you are trying to eat your dog food. Sometimes you even share your dog food with me.
Thank you for letting me crawl all over you . You even let me pull to stand up next to you.
Thank you for letting me wake you up when you are trying to sleep. Even then you don't get mad at me.. I love you Rocky. Love, Noah.

Another funny note about Rocky and Noah. The other night Tommy was giving Rocky a bath in the bathroom tub. Noah crawled in and pulled to stand so he could watch bath time. Every time Tommy filled up the cup to pour on Rocky, Noah would scream and get upset. We came to the conclusion that Noah thought Tommy was hurting Rocky by pouring water on him. It was so cute. Noah was protecting Rocky instead of the other way around..

You are lucky to have such a loving dog Noah. And I'm sure Rocky is lucky to have a best friend in you. We miss you and love you so much!
