Raising a child with a difference? Whatever you’re feeling, be that good or bad, is normal and what’s more, you’re not alone.

At our 20-week scan we found out we were going to have a daughter with a difference; a one in 32,000 upper limb difference called Symbrachydactyly to be exact. We set out on our journey armed with little more than this blog and supported by two awesome charities, Reach and the Lucky Fin Project.

Since that day we’ve gone from down right terrified to down right terrific and we’ve found the blogs and websites of those who had been through this before us a huge source of advice, reassurance and laughter. On top of that, writing our own really helped us to process the rollercoaster of emotions we were riding.

Here at Though She Be But Little, we are open and honest about the highs and the lows of parenting a child with a difference. We hope to pay some of our good fortune forward to any parents and families who walk alongside us or who might come after us, to let them know that they’re not alone and to help validate their feelings and experiences, no matter where they are on their own roller coaster ride.
