I thought it was going to be this adorable and heartwarming milestone that […]

Team Tritanium!

When my husband lost his legs in 2012, we became part of a community I never knew existed. Neither of us had any experience with prosthetics. I had never seen a prosthetic leg before, and little did I know they would become as normal to me as a spoon! The amputee community in San Antonio […]

In Defense of Facebook
