The Power of CrossFit

Jordan discovered CrossFit Kids during last summer’s Nubability Athletics camp. I’d heard of it before. I’d watched amazing athletes complete the unthinkable on social media.

Those Darn Monkey Bars

Monkey bars are the enemy for a child with one hand and a short arm. It’s always been something Jordan and I mention in a joke when she introduces herself. I say, “Jordan can do everything… but sometimes she does it different.” Then she says, “Except monkey bars. I just can’t do monkey bars.” It…

One-handed hair styling

It seems like it was forever ago… I was sitting in a gym with Jordan at Camp No Limits when she was three-years-old watching our friend Lizzie show off how she can put her hair into a pony tail with one hand and her little arm. I watched in awe, shot video and thought how…

But that’s when her teacher asked her the question: Does she want move to the next level learning in a one-handed piano-playing style or does she want to continue with her…

Sometimes it’s setting up pen pal relationships or creating meet ups across the country. Sometimes it’s a long wait before we meet someone in person.…
