The other reason, that goes along with this shift, is that I stopped needing it as much. I started this blog as a way to work through my thoughts and emotions when Belalu got diagnosed, and that need slowly became less urgent. She has been healthy and her development has been progressing normally, so I haven't been as worried about her.
However, I also created this blog to reach out to others who were perhaps grappling with the same news we got two years ago, and I hope that doesn't change. Hypochondroplasia is so rare, there are few places to find info about it. My information, of course, is personal, not medical, but I still remember searching for that personal experience when I found out. So, I want to continue to record our experiences here.
Here are Belalu and Essie on a trip we took to the National Eagle Center in May.
