Hi, We're Rob, Anne-Marie & Reagan!

Welcome to our journey of infertility, adoption and our plunge into special needs parenting. We don't always know what we're doing, but we promise to share unfiltered & real stories that we write from our hearts. Thank you for following along as we continue journeying through Reagan's Glutaric Acidemia Type 1 diagnosis, her crisis, and continuous miraculous recovery.

If you're new, start here.

Real life. we're doing it.

Want to catch up on the GA-1 blogs, including the blogs surrounding Reagan’s crisis?


Journey with us

This is a place where we want to talk, write, educate and connect with our readers. Not only will be be a resource for the GA-1 community, but for all parents navigating the world of special needs parenting.  

Tough things can happen, and we never want to minimize the toll that can take on life, relationships and marriage. It might make you want to hide behind a chair. And that's Ok for a little bit, but please peak your head out because there are beautiful things around the corner. 

Why are we here? one word. hope.

Through experience and talking with one another, and counselors who let us "dump our life bucket", we want you to know that you can live a life that has hope. 

You are not alone. If you've found this blog, please know that you're not alone.

Why are we here?
One Word.

Hope. Beauty. Life.

We're not perfect, far from it actually. If you've followed for a while or have just found us, we promise to tell it like it is. 

We believe in vulnerability.

what makes us different?

In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps. - Proverbs 16:9

It's not a detour.
It's the way.


For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts. - Isaiah 55:9

Sometimes, the way
looks different.
