1/19/09 My First Post

My husband recently asked me if I wanted to start a blog about our daughter “Renny,” who has spina bifida.  I am not much of writer nor one who likes to sit at the computer doing this type of stuff, but I also had been wanting to get down my memories and thoughts about our experiences with our daughter before I began to forget them.  I also know that some of our friends and family like to be updated about Renny, so this was a way they could check up on things whenever they wanted.  Hopefully I will do well at keeping them updated! 

So far, I have created some pages to the right that tell the history of our daughter, beginning with our 20-week ultrasound, when we first learned about her disability, followed by her birth, a short note about God’s will in regards to all of this, and a summary of the implications of spina bifida in her first year and a half of her life.  A lot has happened in these two years since we first learned about Renny – too much to write down everything – but I have tried to sum it up as best as I could. 

I hope you enjoy reading about our journey with Renny.
