I had a bunch of people recommend using blogfrog as an extra way to share word of Born Just Right's mission to spread the word of how our kids are all born just right. So... please feel free to add your links, your ideas and input!!

Hi....came across your page this morning. I am the mother of a born right handed young lady now 17 years old. She was born with an ulna club hand and at age two she had surgery so she could have a prosthetic arm. Lindsay's elbow doesn't bend so her hand just got in her way at that age. Last year we had a device made to hold a guitar pick. That was successful but trying to find the right acoustic guitar for her has been unsuccessful so far. Lindsay has grown into an amazing young lady and has a bright future ahead of her. I am currently working on a free website for her but you can check out her recent actitivities on lindsaycissellfanpage on facebook. She has many more accomplishments that I will post on freewebs.

Hi..my son David is 9 years old and an active little boy.  He was born missing his right hand but that has not stopped him from trying anything.  At 7 he wanted a robot hand and we did get him one that is a myo electric device and gives him a pincer grasp, but it is hot and heavy and limits what he can do with it.  I showed him the picture of Jordan swimming with a helper hand and read to him about using the monkey bars and he was interested in this kind of helper hand.  Can you send me an email or link of what the name of this helper hand and who I can contact.  I would be very grateful.  My email address is PamGriffin@dishmail.net Thank you and I love your facebook page it really made feel not alone in helping my child.

I just read your blog and have to say, it touched my heart.  I tried to put your button on my blog, but it didn't work (?).  Looks like you're doing really great things for families.
