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.

Thank You Uncle Micheal.

Aunt Heather, Uncle Micheal and Noah

Ever since Noah had a fall down a step he has been petrified to crawl up any step.. Noah overcame his fear over the weekend with much help. We were visiting Noah's Aunt Heather and Uncle Micheal on Saturday. Noah crawled over to the step like he always does . He pulled up to the step and then just started yelling ma ma ma ma for me to come save him. I decided to stay out of site in hopes he would get so mad that he would just go up the step. No such luck until Uncle Micheal walked in. Noah and Micheal have a unmistakable bond that would warm anybody's heart.. Uncle Micheal sat down and held out his arms and coaxed Noah up the step. It was so cute Noah was stretching out his arms like "please Uncle Micheal just pick me up". But finally one leg, then the second leg and he was up.. It was a huge victory for Noah. Those steps have been defeating him for a long time. We all clapped and he looked so proud. The perfect example of something that may seem small to someone else but so huge to our family. We love you so much Noah for overcoming your fear.. Thank you for being Noah's friend and supporter Uncle Micheal . We love you too.. I didn't bring my camera so I didn't get a picture that day. But here are some old pictures of Aunt Heather and Uncle Micheal with Noah. This is their wedding day and I think Noah was only 5 months old.
