I shared my heart and you are making a difference

It takes $500 to send one child to Camp No Limits. It’s one of the most supportive and special camps I know that supports the full family in the world of limb differences. It’s become the focus of our love and fundraising for many years. It’s a place where Jordan feels loved, trusted and she’s…

But that doesn’t mean you can’t go! e-NABLE is holding a one-day conference bringing 3D printing experts together with prosthetic experts… and maybe even you!

Redefining staring and rude staring

Last week we launched an awesome conversation about putting an end to staring. The one thing that came up many different time is the varying comfort people have to ask questions about a difference and the varying comfort people feel when they are asked questions. I think we might need to first redefine staring. There…

Using a t-shirt to stop the staring

Last week’s dance class was rough. There were two hip hop classmates who wouldn’t stop staring at Jordan and she didn’t feel up to confronting the kids. I got a bit saucy about staring on this blog… And it opened up some great conversations. But while us grown ups work on refining how we raise…

Let's celebrate unicorns

Yesterday’s post asking everyone to not stare, just ask spread far and wide. I’m honored so many people joined in on the conversation surrounding the topic. That post inspired an awesome discussion on Facebook based on a question a Born Just Right commenter had: If you’re encouraging someone to not stare and ask questions, how…

Can we teach our kids to stop staring?

Seriously. Can we raise children who choose to ask questions and speak directly to people who look or act differently? Can we have open conversations with our children to discuss why it can be so painful to whisper and point at people who are different or act differently? I’m so tired of it. Jordan’s tired…

A cross country learning experience

I try to be in town for the most important things in my kids’ lives. But since I took a new job almost two years ago, I have missed a couple band concerts and a few school events. But most of the time, Randy is in town to help capture the moments so I don’t…
