I decided to start blogging about Jordan from the moment I found out I was pregnant. Jordan was born with a little arm that didn't grow like most babies. Her left arm stopped just above the elbow. Now I'm committed to making sure Jordan gets everything out of life. We feel blessed to be the parents of a very special little girl.

Jordan's first trip to the park

I took Jordan to the park yesterday -- Really it was so Cameron could go to the park. But it was the first time since we got to Florida that Jordan was well enough to leave the house. It was also the first time I've taken Jordan out around strange kids and parents. She wasn't awake very long while we were there, but I didn't hide Jordan's arm in any way. No one asked questions, but I got some strange looks by a few moms. None of the kids seemed to care that Jordan is a little different. I feel better just doing it. Live our life and learn how to go into the public and get the stares. The cool thing is for Jordan, it's no big deal... This is who she is. I'm going to try to go with the flow with her.
