April is Limb Difference (or Loss) Awareness Month. During this month I like to share experiences of my 18-month old daughter Livy, who was born symbrachydactyly. That’s a fancy word for having a limb difference on her left hand. We found out about Livy’s diagnosis when I was 20 weeks pregnant. Initially I was devastated
Is it too late to talk about New Years’ goals…or intentions? I’m one of those who doesn’t make resolutions because it sets me up for failure. What works for me is to set up a goal for each month. For instance, in January, my monthly goal is to move my body in some way for

One of the perks of working the job that I do is that I get most of the same holidays off as my daughter has off from school. February included a couple of those days and as one of them approached, I thought about spending a day together with just my first born. The girl
Could it be that in my last year of my 30’s I’m finally comfortable with who I am? I think so.
