Why Blog?


Adriana in England (14 months) – before her SMA diagnosis

After we found out Adriana has Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) Type II — and were told that most likely she won’t walk — we felt lost, like many families that face a devastating medical diagnosis.

This blog is an attempt to journal our decision to move from Littleton, Colorado to Lima, Peru; a journey not to find a cure but to create a life where Adri (and her family) can flourish and be happy.

Perhaps a cure for the heart, rather than the disease.

It’s a blog to keep our family and friends updated on our life here in Peru.

Or, maybe it’ll be a source of information — or comfort — for someone facing a difficult time in their life.

As with every journey, many things remain to be seen.

  1. Hi, I would love to connect with you guys someday, I’m a mom of 3 kiddos, 2 with SMA. And I am half Peruvian. I plan on bringing my family to Peru at some point ( our family also lives in Lima) and think it would be fantastic to have our children meet. ( my kids are 6, 5, and 3). God bless you and yours. 🙂
