Today is a very special and meaningful day for our family.
Today I know that all those hours I spent researching and trying to get answers have helped me understand my son.
Today means that I was right and that I really do know my son better than anyone.
Today was a long awaited day
Today I feel happy because, I finally get some closure
Today I can say that my son is very unique because only 1 in 300,000 people have this extremely rare genetic syndrome.
Today our geneticist confirmed what we knew all along. Nathan's molecular testing confirmed that he has Rubinstein-Taybi Syndrome (RTS).
Today my son has RTS. February 16th 2009 is a day I will never ever forget.


  1. Again, awesome news! I am so glad that you finally got the answers that you were waiting for.

  2. Big day. Ours was in February, too.

    It probaby feels like a wobbly stepping stone just became wide and stable enough to spend a little time on to plan...

    All the best.

  3. I am so glad you got some answers. It is part of the healing process.

    Sending you lots of love,
    Kelly W.

  4. Today is a big day! Glad you get some closure! Your little man is unique and special (and not just because he has RTS).

  5. Thinking of you today.. I am sure it is a relief to feel some closure. Hugs.

  6. Having concrete answers to such a complex puzzle must feel good. I am happy for you and your family.

  7. Great news for Nathan. Great news for you and Sean.
