What Happens After Your Kid Goes Viral

April 4, 2016

This past week was a bit nutty. I was finally home from a long month of travel, the kids had Spring Break and I was working from home when I came down with whatever evil germs the kids gave me. It was a nasty one. But while I was working on important work stuff in […]

March 28, 2016

Ever since Jordan had a chance to spend almost a week in San Francisco with KIDmob and Autodesk to build her vision of a superhero that shoots sparkles from her arm, she’s shown a new version of confidence in her ability to create. Jordan says her superhero’s name is “Girl Blaster.” But our project still has […]

The Born Just Right community is a stunning group of people. We are from all parts of the world. We have some type of touchpoint in the special needs world – especially limb differences.

An Unexpected Basketball Season

March 8, 2016

We all carry a lot of assumptions in our life based on the perceptions we’ve gathered as we grow up. Every once and a while, those perceptions change. Mine changed while watching Jordan talking to a student journalist about basketball. Through the years, Jordan has grown incredibly fond of basketball. She loves playing aggressive defense and […]

There’s a new Finding Dory trailer out today! The movie is the next installment from Disney Pictures and Pixar about Dory, Nemo and their friends.

The Power of CrossFit

February 24, 2016

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. After Jordan spent time working with Nubability coach, Dave Newkirk, she told me she wanted to get serious. So Jordan started weekly workouts at a gym in our area that had invited her […]

Jordan Makes Front Page News

February 20, 2016

I had mentioned how we continue to work with journalists to tell the story about our American Girl petition. Today, we were able to purchase a copy (or five) of The Kansas City Star. Jordan is on the front page with a picture of her running during a Girls on the Run practice earlier this week. […]

Turning into a Limb Difference Superhero

January 28, 2016

Every time I tell Jordan about a new baby born with a limb difference, she cheers. That’s because she isn’t sad about living with one hand. It’s a blessing. How many kids with two hands can say they have a bunch of extra hands? Two-handed kids don’t have a chance to go to Camp No Limits […]

American Girl Didn’t Say No

January 8, 2016

Getting the world to think little differently about limb differences is often challenging. Reading the comments on the Change.org page renews my faith in the world. Reading comments on CBS News’ Facebook page is disappointing and more reason why I think our petition to American Girl is so important: Kids who grow up aware that […]

The petition is a week old today. As I write this post, it […]

Comments Inside our American Girl Petition

January 6, 2016

Almost 5,000 signatures? Seriously? Our campaign is growing rapidly. I’m so proud to see so many people supporting the idea of offering a limb difference doll option at American Girl. We have yet to catch American Girl or Mattel’s attention. As I wrote at the start of this campaign, it’s going to take more than the […]

Celebrating 10 Years with Family and Friends

January 5, 2016

Jordan is a whole decade old! That’s pretty exciting. We didn’t hold an official birthday party because Jordan has a big fundraiser she’s hoping to plan at a local art store. But we did celebrate with friends and family. The upside of having a birthday after Christmas is her triplet cousins were able to be […]
