When I think of an unbreakable moment since becoming a mom, I have to say it is when we received Carsyn’s diagnosis. If you have been a reader here for awhile you know Carsyn has Holoprosencephaly (also known as HPE), and because of that he has Cerebral Palsy. When I first heard the neurologist say that word I had no idea what it meant, or how it would affect our family. In the beginning, I wavered for sure, but I did not let his diagnosis break me.
I did as much research as I could. I sent his MRI off to the Carter’s center (which specializes in HPE), and had them give me a second opinion. I joined a support group, called Families for HoPE. We went to a conference for families that were affected by Holoprosencephaly. We fought back, we didn’t let his diagnosis pull us into despair. Life with him is far from easy, but it is so worth it. He brings so much joy and laughter to our family. Carsyn makes me see life in a whole new way.
Netflix released a brand new show called Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. It is about all that Kimmy Schmidt has gone through in her life (including being rescued from a doomsday cult) and how she is not letting anything break her. It is hilarious, of course, since Tina Fey is one of the creators. It is a really great show and I hope they come out with many more seasons!
Right now there are 13 episodes available to watch. Watch a little preview below, then head to Netflix, binge watch the whole season, and let me know what you think!
