During a 24 week ultrasound, Jessie and Nathan were told that their unborn son, Ammon, had a heart condition as well as clubbed feet. After they met with a specialist, they were encouraged to abort their son. They choose to continue with the pregnancy and Ammon was born with several other disabilities. Despite all of this he has enriched their lives with his happy personality.
Advice and guidance from medical professionals and internet searches can only go so far, and the information and images are often scary. The best source of information, to know what it’s really like to have a child with a disability or life-long condition, is from another parent who has a similar child. We are honored and inspired by the parents who have shared their story with us. They inform and encourage others, in similar circumstances, just starting their journey.
We are actively collecting and updating new stories.
We welcome you to check back often, and to share your story. If you or someone you know has a story to share, please contact us to add your story.
