On the 30th of August 2008 I prayed and asked God for a little baby, then God gave me Jodie....
My Face may be different, but my feelings the same I laugh and I cry, and I take pride in my gains I was sent here among you, to teach you to love As God in the heavens, looks down from above To Him I am no different, His love know no bounds Its those here among you, in cities and towns That judge me by standards that man has imparted But this family I have chosen will help me get started For I'm one of the children, so special and few That came here to learn the same lessons as you That love is acceptance it must come from the heart We all have the same purpose, though not the same start The Lord gave me life, to live and embrace And I'll do it as you do but at my own pace

Day 55 The Geneticist Arrives
I have never felt so humiliated in my life. The geneticist arrived, camera in hand. She asked me to undress Jodie and of course everybody was staring. She was there for an hour and took about 30 pictures of all the "problems" she thought Jodie had. Flat thumbs, large fontanel, down slanting eyes, high palate, natal tooth, columella extending below nares, even her birthmark at the back of her head (which my son and husband has) was a problem. After an hour she took us into the office and sat us down and then the story started with Rubinstein Taybi. She confirmed that she thinks with Jodie's clinical features that she definitely has RTS. I couldn't breathe, I wanted to throw up.... How is it possible, has God forsaken me? We didn't say anything on our way home.....
