Meet Logan’s Little Pitt Sister!

This is Alexandra.  She is a beautiful little girl who was also diagnosed with Pitt Hopkins not too long ago.  I remember when her amazing mom, Nicole, introduced her family and shared their story.  I felt as if I could have written it myself.  Their journey was practically a mirror image of ours!  Nicole put together this beautiful video, which I feel captures every emotion that our family has gone through, and still goes through.  What she says in the end about her little girl really hits home with me.  Logan has the power to do the same, to light up my world just when I think it is closing in.  Please take a moment to watch this brave and touching video.  And please keep this sweet family in your thoughts and prayers.

Our family is so blessed to have such wonderful people in our lives, and we are so thankful to have our Pitt Hopkins families.  I’ve never met a more embracing, loving, encouraging and uplifting group of people in my life.  I’ve learned more from these parents than I have from most doctors, and am inspired daily by them.  No doubt we will be learning something from Nicole, Matt and Alexandra!

To keep up with sweet Alexandra check out her website, Alexandra’s Pitt Crew!  It’s fantastic!

Potential Treatment!!! Wow!!!

I just received an email from Audrey Davidow (one of the amazing moms who have gotten the ball rolling on research), and am beyond excited and hopeful for Logan’s future!  The Lieber Institute was one of the first funded labs for PTHS, and they have possibly come up with a treatment!  This is amazing not only for Logan and her Pitt “siblings”, but for others on the autism spectrum.  Click below to read the full article.

Where We Began

For the past three years Logan has been our little mystery.  She was born in the summer of 2012, and was by far my easiest pregnancy and delivery!  She was a happy, healthy baby, full of smiles and giggles.  She was a dream baby!

At around 6 months we started noticing that she was not meeting some of her milestones.  She was not rolling around regularly, and she was not sitting unsupported for more than a few seconds.  Our pediatrician suggested we waste no time in figuring out why.  What could it hurt, right?  Before we knew it we had appointments with neurology, developmental specialists and genetics.  She had an MRI that was completely normal.  The developmental specialist could not see anything wrong with her, suspecting that she Continue reading
