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.

Feeling Down And Then There is This.





I have been feeling down lately. There is really no other way to put it. I have been really frustrated with Noah's development. Feeling like nothing I do is good enough, like I haven't worked hard enough. The walking, communication, all the extra work it has just been feeling overwhelming. Then I captured these photos and I realized my children are happy. That is really all that matters.

Smiles already from Nick? Amazingly adorable!
