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.


Is it too late to change my mind?

So I'm heading out of town this week for a conference and a quick visit to see old friends. I just got an email from Jordan's physical therapist who said she thinks Jordan is possibly days away from walking and recommended someone keeps a video camera around at all times to capture the big moment when it all kicks in.

Maybe I shouldn't leave town!

But then again, she's probably more likely to walk without me around. Maybe a little time away from me with intensive PT will be exactly what she needs.

Another interesting development: Jordan's therapist thinks she walks way better with the prosthetic on so we should wear it more than I've had her wearing lately. Apparently Jordan throws her little arm high into the air to try and maintain balance that she feels when she wears her arm. Very interesting.
