My son, Merritt, was born with a left clubbed foot and congenital shortening of his left leg. Our journey in understanding his conditions and in seeking the best possible treatments has definitely had its ups and downs. This blog is my way of sharing our experiences. It is my hope that similarly situated parents may use information on this page as a resource and as inspiration. Thank you for visiting!

Hey everyone! As of May 1st Merritt is fully walking! woohoo! He is having so much fun being chased by his big brother. Actually, his first real distance was from our TV to the coffee table. Here's the story: Big brother was intensely watching Chuggington and Merritt decided to shut off the TV... of course. So, Big Brother got off the couch and started walking towards Merritt; You know, to show Merritt who's boss. Well, Merritt got the biggest smile on his face, squealed, and then walked as fast as he could to the coffee table in order to escape! It was SO CUTE!

Ever since that moment, he has been non-stop! Check out this video of our little man walking on the beach.
