“You hem me in – behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too lofty for me to attain.” Psalms 139:5.

Recently, I have been blessed to have made a good friend, Andrea, who connected me with amazing Christian friends! Andrea suggested we travel to Ft. Wayne, IN, last November, to join in with other ladies who have a heart for ministry; all touched by Turner syndrome. I said, “Sure!” I had no idea how important and beautiful it was going to turn out to be! These ladies hearts are to lift up Jesus to help others touched by Turner syndrome, too.

We instantly all connected when each explained struggles encountered with Turner syndrome, which is a chromosomal disorder with many varied presentations/experiences. Individually are touched in unique ways, but its core is small stature and growth; bot in height and secondary female characteristics. Also, related is infertility and nonverbal learning disorders. We continued to share common struggles obstacles Turner syndrome women can have in living independent successful lives. My greatest obstacle has been dealing with nonverbal learning disorders; verbal learning is easy, hands-on-is more challenging. I will be sharing more about this on January 14th’s Leaping Butterfly Ministry Blog.
