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.

Are You A Stay At Home Mom?
Being home with your children is a very important job. It is one of the most important jobs in the world. I don't care if you have one or 5 children to take care of it's hard. If your child has special needs or developing typically it doesn't matter. As mom's we work very hard each and every day to raise our children. It's harder than most people think. So today for all the stay at home mom's I want you to pat yourself on the back. And take some time for yourselves. Go get a pedicure, manicure or just take a few hours for yourself. I met a mom recently who has 3 children (one with special needs. ) She told me she never ever leaves her children. I told her she has to so she can be a better parent. We all need to take care of ourselves. We all need to remember as much as we love our children we still have a "self". Today I say "you are doing a great job to all the mom's out there".
