Inspiration

The inspiration behind our name is the story of my daughter, Skyler.

Skyler recovering, post heart surgery

Skyler at 5 months, recovering from heart surgery

She was born with a heart condition that we discovered when she got very sick at only five months old. Despite a blockage in her aorta, her heart grew bigger to meet the needs of her body. She was weak, and her heart hurt, but it did not stop. She fought through the pain and found the energy to survive. It took sacrifice. And even after the transformation to a new stronger heart began, she fought. Her anger against breathing treatments and blood draws were heard loud and clear through the hospital walls. But that attitude and tenacity for life was inspiring. She never quit, despite the grave challenges and pain she had to face. Through it all, her heart never reached a limit. It was never too weak, and will never be too strong.

It is a reminder to all of us for what we are mentally and physically capable of, and for that, there are no limits.

  1. That is awesome!!! I did not know that is where the name came from! I will be thinking about your beautiful, strong baby girl when I don’t think I have anything left! What an inspiratio she is! BTW we are in the process of adopting medical special needs…most likely a heart defect but we don’t know for sure, yet. thanks for sharing.

  2. What an outstanding source of motivation, Ronnie. She’s a sweetheart that will continue to inspire you. Deazie and I will be by soon to test our limit!:-)
