Wishbone Day 2012

Today, May 6th is a day most of you have never heard of before.  To me, this day holds a very special place in my heart.  Today is Wishbone Day.  Wishbone Day was established to raise awareness for Osteogenesis Imperfecta.

Look at this picture of a little girl hugging her baby doll.  This might look like an ordinary photo, however, if you look closely you'll notice her right leg is in a cast from a broken tibia/fibula fracture. Her mom kindly bandaged her baby doll's leg to match her daughters.

This little girl was me when I was two years old.

I have Type I Osteogenesis Imperfecta, a brittle bone disorder.  I have broken 15 bones.  Any child I have has a 50% chance of inheriting my gene.  My sweet Lincoln is OI free. 

OI is a very rare disorder, which makes raising awarness crucial.  You can help by clicking here.


  1. That is very wonderful of you to raise awareness. I am getting updated on blogs from in a few days and I was shocked to read this right away in a way. I have never heard of "Wish Bone Day' BUT I have heard of OI. A very good friend of mine has it as well, and I have learned about it from him and from reading on my own.

    You were such a cute little girly! How sweet.

  2. Thank you for opening my eyes and raising my awareness! Before you blog I had honestly never heard of OI. What a cute two year old you were!


Comments make me happy! I love to hear from my readers :)
