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.

Little Celebrity!

 On December 22 there was a beautiful little angel face that graced the cover of the Detroit News.  That was my Annie!
I'm not quite sure how I managed to finagle my way onto the cover as well but there I am too.  The HERO of this story is Brian Dalton!  Brain has been helping us raise funds for Rett Syndrome for 3 years now, however, this year he's going well above and beyond and competing in the Escape from Alcatraz  triathlon.

Brian says "As far as 
as triathlons go, it doesn't get any bigger or more challenging that the Escape From Alcatraz race. The race is also symbolic of how the girls are in essence a prisoner in their own bodies. Their minds are free, but their bodies are broken. So, to help out, I'm going to put myself and my body through one of the most challenging races I could find."  

You can read our blog post about how Brian and his students have touched our lives HERE.

A huge thank you to Brian for all that you are continuing to do for our sweet Annie, and to the Detroit News and Shawn Lewis (author) for seeing worth in this wonderful story, for publishing it, and for putting us on the front page for all to read!
