Meet Sawyer!

So you may be wondering what all of this hype is about and so I decided that it was time for me to introduce my little guy, Sawyer. I have two boys and he's the youngest. Sawyer was born with a condition known as Achondroplasia, Dwarfism. I have a similar disorder, and so he's inherited it from me. This means that his arms and legs will never grow to their full potential. He'll stop growing probably around four feet. But I must say that Sawyer has been one of the greatest blessings in my life. He is a little baby genius (as most Achondroplasia babies are) and is just so loveable! Growing up, I went to Shriners Hospital in SLC and they provided all of their services for free, including the limb lengthening procedure, where I gained six inches in height for adaptation purposes. Shriners was the most incredible experience for me and I have always wanted to pay them back. Now that Sawyer has also become a patient there, I feel even more indebted to them. A lot of these babies need everything from CT's to MRI's to Sleep Studies and PT, as well as tonsilectomies, the list goes on and Shriners provides all of this for the children free of charge! Can you believe that? So now, here on my blog I'm hosting this Extravaganza, in hopes of raising money to pay them back. We will be having some great people participating this month and even a fun EVENT with one top company...I'm not mentioning names, but may I suggest that you check out this website?....

So keep checking back because this is going to be an incredible month for tinyseamstress!

***Proceeds earned will be donated to Shriners Hospital directly, not one individual.
