This site is for information, support and questions for any parent of a child missing digits.

Welcome to the wonderful world of being a parent to a child born not whole, but still so very perfect. The life of a child born or with an aquired limb difference is a path that is full of ups and downs.

I am a very fortunate Mom to a son born in 2003 with bilateral symbractydactyly (his right thumb is his only complete digit). He also has clinodactyly of both pinkies. He was diagnosed while I was still pregnant, but that didn't make the journey any more easy.

My main goal for this Symby Site is help bring awareness for other parents who are in a similar situation. But, I am so not computer saavy and if anyone has any pointers/tips for me, I would take them all with great relish!

I would also like to know how everyone with a fancy blogger is able to put on the nice backgrounds--not the generic blogger ones. Hints anyone?!!!

I do have other blogs, but they are full of my nonsense chatter over nothing very exciting! I know this site too is very bare and still in the early stages, but if any of you are able to help me spread the word about it, I would be forever in your debt.

I am also hoping to not turn it into a blog about Mikey directly. I would like to be able to share his stories, pictures etc, but I also want it to be informative.

I still haven't had a chance to upload more pictures and videos because work has been very busy (we are moving hospitals next Wednesday) and I am hoping to have more free time after that is done.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit.

  1. Hi! I added a link to your site on mine: http://handinformation.blogspot.com/

    My son is 3 months old and was born with symbrachydactyly affecting his left hand. I started a blog to share info about the condition with my friends and family and to connect with other parents with kids with congenital hand anomalies.

    All the best to you!

    PS - You can buy the graphics and even the installation codes for blogger blogs. My favourites are by Zoe Pearn at Sweetshoppedesigns.com (that's where mine is from).
