Scott and Bridget met in 1993 and were married in 2001. In September of 2003 we welcomed our first miracle, James. 16 months later we brought home our second miracle, Annie. And in October of 2006 our family was complete with miracle #3, Gracie. Rett syndrome entered our lives when Annie was diagnosed on May 19, 2006. This is the life of the MacDonald family as we juggle 3 small children and battle Rett Syndrome until Gods perfect time when we are cured.

Rett Syndrome never takes a day off and neither does our little Annie! Even on Weekends she has to work, work, work. tonight we worked on crawling. This is frustrating. Annie didn't learn how to crawl until she was 16 months old but then regression hit and it was taken away. We work so hard on walking but we always remind ourselves that you must crawl before you can walk. Annie's doing great with her 4 point - she can hold herself in position for forever now! But moving those limbs is really tough. To motivate our little champion, James decided to spread out some textured clothes that Grammy bought. He made a "track" for Annie to practice on.
Of course after Annie made it around the "track" it was James and Gracie's turn to race around together.
