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.

Special Exposure Wednesday

I've been out of town for a number of Wednesdays... So I figured I could add an additional picture of Jordan working with her new arm. She has three different hands. This is the one she really needs to work on with her occupational therapist. It was awesome to watch them work together this week and see how Jordan can really catch on how to make it work... She just needs encouragement to use it. During lunch, she was encouraged to use her "hand" to help push her peaches into a spoon. It was a little hard for me to watch. But she's a trooper and I know she'll find a way to make this all work as she grows.
