Myself, my husband Wayne, and our wonderful little boy Liam would like to express our sincerest gratitude to our family and friends. Thank you all for providing a shining beacon of love, support, and prayer every step of the way. Being new parents seems challenging enough in learning the ins and outs of caring for an infant. Not to mention those times when a baby cries and you just can't seem to figure out why. I'm not going to pretend this added challenge to new parenthood has been easy. It will likely be one of the most difficult experiences in my life. But through the love and support of our family and friends, and the positive impact it is all having on Liam, I am encouraged daily to keep going strong.
Furthermore, I would like to thank everyone who reads this website. You are encouraging me to share our experiences and offer hope to those who need it. From day one, I have received requests from some of Liam's care providers to either start a support group or lead one for arthrogryposis. They have been inspired by what they describe as a positive outlook and attitude, the motivating force behind Liam's desire to succeed. Where other parents and families might feel discouraged, we push away those feelings and plow on through with all of the positive reinforcement we can muster. I hope this blog proves to be a good start in providing support where others need it. I feel a little overwhelmed with the idea of leading a support group since I am currently just a pupil. But your support to me as a reader of this blog is helping me on my mission. And for that, once again, I thank you. Sincerely. Thank you.
