Hi. My 12 month old son is a bilateral lower leg amputee (due to severe congenital bone deficiency). He's only one month post-surgery so we haven't started the process of being fitted for prostheses yet, but soon!
I would sure like to connect with other natural parenting types who ALSO manage orthopedic disability. In addition to his leg amputations, my son has hand differences, as well.
I think there are so many people of a natural living mindset who naively assume that if you do everything "right", you will have a "perfect" baby. Of course, that's not how it works. I'm still a proponent of a healthy lifestyle and good nutrition, but now I realize that we are less in control than we think we are. No amount of raw kale is going to keep genes from mutating, you know?
So, other parents of babies with limb differences? Babies who learned to walk on prosthetic legs? Anyone?
