I have a three year old son whose name is Ryan. He, of course, was diagnosed with Apert syndrome at birth. I also have a daughter who is two years old. They are both amazing. People sometimes underestimate his knowledge but to know him a pleasure. He amazes me everyday. I hope we can get to know more people and make new friends.

Ryan in the hospital after being born.  About 1 1/2 weeks old.

Ryan & his dad (Shane) when Ryan was in the hospital after his birth.

Ryan had just come home after spending 3 weeks in Kosair Children's' Hospital.  His first doctor appointment.

This picture was taken before Christmas in 2001 with his cousin Jared.
This was Ryan's first syndactly release on his left hand.

This was in May 2002.  Ryan had just had his first cranial surgery.

This is from Ryan's first birthday.
