Though it’s only January we have already seen a small glimpse of how our world is going to be turned upside down. We had a great December celebrating the Christmas season. Our season was also welcomed with our 6-month visit to the Myelo Clinic at Akron Children’s to meet with his specialists to assess his progress.

Our faith helps us in both good and hard times

As we’ve journeyed through, life, we have come to rely more and more on our faith to carry us through the good and the hard times. We understand only so much of what happens is truly in our control. We feel that God has brought each member of our family together on purpose.

Jordan continues to grow into his own little person, daily. His language is one of our favorite pieces of this puzzle. His words have turned into short sentences and his sentences conversation followed by myriad facial expressions.

I’m not sure if looking forward or anxiously awaiting is the correct phrase to describe how we felt going into our Myelo Clinic appointment in June. Our last was in December so we were ready to see what our doctors had to say about our little man’s progress.

Navigating the waters with Jordan

Jordan has been growing a little more each day. His language skills are blooming, mobility improving, and he’s becoming more involved in services that are provided to kids who may need a little more assistance blooming into who they are.

Jordan’s 18 month Myelo Clinic day at Akron Children’s Hospital arrived with what seems like the same anxiety and excitement as we’ve had in the past.
