In memory of Linnea Grace, our first daughter with #SMA

Our first SMA daughter, Linnea Grace, made the Angel Wings Awareness
Quilt!! Thinking of Linnea :)

Trying out the EyeTech eye-gaze system

As Emily grows her ability to communicate will become more difficult.
In fact, it already is difficult. Systems like the EyeTech will help
her communicate effectively with people and objects around her... Like
the Internet. We hope to get her on an eye-gaze system in the near
future. A big year for technology for Emily!!

Sisters holding hands

This is just too sweet not to post. Annabelle and Emily fell asleep just like this.... holding hands.

900 attendees at this year's Families of #SMA conference.

Wow. This conference has grown so much in just the last 3 years that
we've been attending. 900 attendees!!! Consequently, I also approved
our 900th member on www.smaspace.com today. :)

Testing out Permobil chair at Families of #SMA conference. Emily loved it!!

Emily just loves this. We're hoping to get this chair with some
modifications in the Summer sometime. It's the Permobil C300 base with
the Corpus Jr. seat and Microlite Switch. Good stuff. She did great!

Sleeping soundly. Annabelle LOVES to sleep next to Emily.

Annabelle is such a great sister. She just loves being with Emily and
this is a nice treat to sleep on the same bed with her.

We're doing well. Thanks to another SMA family, the Poole's, we get to
stay in a home rather than a hotel.

Thanks Cory, Katie, Avery, and Aubrey!!!

Peace <><
