Our son Matt has brought such joy to us and through him we have learnt so many things about ourselves and life. He has a rare genetic syndrome called Rubinstein-Taybi Syndrome. This blog is where we process the things we have learnt, where we share our challenges and pains, and where we celebrate small victories.

More Winter Adventures
Matt was terrified of running down this very, very tall sand dune. All the other kids had had a whale of a time sliding, rolling and crashing down the sand. Then Daddy came to take his hand, and this gave Matt the courage to mostly jump down the slope - and his laughter filled the air as he realised it wasn't so scary after all.
I love this one of Matt waving at me - I was standing a fair distance away from him. He was running in between these beautiful purple flowered sand dunes. He stopped suddenly, looked for where I was, gave me a ear-to-ear grin before offering a enthusiastic wave.
