Our Hope

By sharing our story and our experiences with this birth injury we will hopefully educate people. Knowledge is power. Our hope is that you will read this blog, share it with your friends, and they will share with their friends. Then in some small way we have prevented other families from having to go through what we have.

Things are returning to normal around.  Well....as normal as life can be with a toddler in a full arm/torso cast anyway.  Jadon is adjusting to the cast well.  I even found him sleeping on his stomach last night and he is waking up less and less in the night now.  Today is a week since surgery.  I can't believe one week is done already!  We return to Philly for cast removal and a week of therapy the week of April 4th-8th.  They will do therapy twice a day for that week.  Once in the morning and once after lunch.  I have a feeling we are going to have one tired and cranky boy that week.

We are discovering that the 4T shirts I bought are fitting the best.  The child size 5's I bought are too big but some 5T Garanimal shirts I picked up at Walmart are working out pretty good.  So I would say that in most brands shirts two sizes too big are adequate. 

In the pics below Jadon is enjoying a get well treat from his Great Aunt Marilyn.  She sent him a get well card with a dollar in it.  She said she heard his favorite treat was M &M's and to use this dollar to go and get some well deserved M&M's!  So we did ! 


  1. He is such a happy little man! Thank you so much for sharing his story. I am now more informed then I was before! You are a wonderful advocate for your son and so many others!

  2. just like Emily loves his M&M's.. he looks so much like Jacob wow.. glad he is doing better..
    I work with a gentleman who had this problem but he is 62 years old and back then they did pratically nothing for him.. His left arm has pretty much no use and is so much smaller than his right. He has said he has struggled so much because of this injury..
