It's been a few years but I still remember
My eyes hazy and mouth held tight
Looking through the window that "appeared" to be perfect, with no streaks
All I could do is watch with a intense desire to release my feelings of fear and sadness
Month's went by and the window still stood strong in front of me
Still appearing "perfect" before my eyes
I grew to despise the window
I wanted to scream "let me in, I belong there too"
Then year's went by
The haze from my eyes faded and my mouth relaxed
The strength grew within me to confront the window
As the haze cleared from my eyes, I noticed the window had smudges and streaks
The window was full of imperfections I didn't notice before
The other side of the window was a lot like my side, with it's own moments of fear and sadness.
I gently reached for his hand and stepped through the window
Together, we have found joy,laughter, tears and sadness, on both sides of the window
We are all the same
We are all perfectly different
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.
