I am in Cloverdale, Alabama



I have a 17 yr old daughter that has a slight curve of 7 degrees in her spine (scolocious?) not sure how to spell it. But she is currently going through Physical therapy for her back they said something about her lower back hinge doesn't bend right when she leans backwards still kinds confused bout that one :)



I have a 15 yr old daughter that has been diganosed with Bi-polar, PTSD, ADHD, ODD, and several learning disorders and just recently with asthma



I have a 13 yr old son who was diganosed with Long Q.T Heart syndrome and asthma



and I have my little miracle child My youngest daughter died 6 times from age 1yr to age 3 yrs then they found she had Long Q.T Syndrome ( that is how they found it in my son)



So needless to say we are a very blessed household for God to choose our house for all this :)

Hi moms!

I am from Nor. California along the Pacific coast. My daughter is undiagnosed. There isn't anything they can find, she is all over the charts with different characteristics of disorders and her DNA is normal. I believe she is close to Noonans. But her Pedi is not concerned of that. He just calls her his Miracle patient.
