Full Circle

I still sometimes wonder what I’m doing…why bother with this whole writing and blogging thing. Is there any point? I don’t have a clear goal of what I want to accomplish…but it’s therapeutic in a way. And I hopefully Makenna and Declan will enjoy looking back on it, when they’re older.

But in the last couple of days, I’ve had two new moms contact me. Women who’ve recently given birth to babies with achondroplasia. Wow. It really hasn’t been long since I, myself, was thrown into this unknown world and was searching the internet trying to find resources and hoping to make sense of things.

In some ways it seems I’ve come full circle, which is fitting as we’re just days away from the anniversary of that momentous day. (Really…we’ve come a long way baby). And I’m feeling quite reflective these days. But on the other hand…there is still so much to learn, and so much room for growth. I don’t feel like I’m a pro at this (far from it actually), but now…here I am, offering information and words of advice to others who are where I was not that long ago. I’m no expert, but I’m willing and happy to offer what I’ve learned this past year. I do, however, know one thing is for certain…it’s going to be okay.

And then this morning; I checked my blog stats (which are pretty cool and interesting). It’s surreal seeing hits from all around the world…South Africa, Norway, Ireland, Switzerland, Brazil. This morning it tells me that someone found my blog through a Google search. The search terms were… ‘dwarfism in babies’.


Maybe there really is something to this whole blogging thing after all.


About Tammy

I am a single mother to 2 wonderful children, ages 1 and 5. My youngest was surprisingly born with a rare genetic condition, achondroplasia, which is a type of dwarfism. This blog is a glimpse into my crazy life as I wade through figuring out dwarfism and divorce while enjoying every second of my deficient domestic bliss.

    It’s been over a year since my sons diagnosis of hypochondroplasia, but I still get excited to connect with others.
    I have no clear goal with my blog, other than to journal our life events so that the kids have something to look back on.
