This blog is written by both Rob and Anne-Marie. Indented and italicized paragraphs are written by Rob. We visited the Clinic for Special Children, in Lancaster, PA. There’s a reason we decided to come here, in the middle of Pennsylvania, Amish community. There’s a man here, Dr. Strauss, a world-renowned specialist in GA-1. He helped […]
You know what’s crazy about open cuts and wounds? They heal. We often say time heals all wounds but I tend to disagree with that statement. As a person who has had lots of wounds, other than just this massive physical wound that’s healed on top of my head, I think a more accurate statement […]
Ok, so I know the last blog was about making it to the mountain top, and yes, the metaphors that go along with that and our life are poignant, but it dawned on me, that mountains still have rocky terrain. You’ve got the view and perspective of where you’ve been when you get to the top, […]

One Year Ago. Part 2. Exactly one year to the day. Do you ever have those moments where your whole heart breaks in two for your child? It’s happened a lot, but this past weekend I realized I needed to up my parenting game on the spot. It wasn’t just any teachable moment, it was […]
Ever feel like you’re just surviving and hanging on by a thread? Yet somehow you muster enough strength to get to the end of the day, collapsing at the finish line, staying asleep there, only to wake up at the beginning of the race come morning? This feels like my current life stage, it’s my […]
These next several blogs are part of a series that I’d recommend be read in order. I haven’t wanted to post anything recently, and now you will understand why.
