When I first started The #DiversAbleModel Project I knew I wanted it to evolve into something bigger than just fashion. I wanted the blog and the project itself to give people a place to openly share their "normal" lives. I wanted to help everyone understand that everyone is part of the #DiversAble population because we all have Diverse Abilities. I'll be honest, it's been very frustrating lately feeling like I just can't get the content that I once had, content that is genuinely impactful and has power.
This may sound strange, but last night I had a dream that I documented my pregnancy journey on my blog. I woke up thinking about all the doctors that have told me how little information on pregnancy and Arthrogryposis (my Diverse Ability) there is. When I was researching the challenges I might face during my first pregnancy, I was so disappointed at the lack of information. For this reason, I'm going to do my best to be part of the solution. I'll try to share here at least once a week, sometimes through writing and pictures, other times through video. Some of my experience will be the same as every other woman, while others will likely be very different. Either way, I hope this journey will empower you to strive for all your goals and to be there for those who need a little help achieving theirs!
P.S. Of course there will be lots of fashion included in this journey! A momma has to look good, right?
