W E L C O M E !


Jonathan Michael arrived on March 8, 2000! He was born with a rare genetic disease called Osteogenesis Imperfecta, more commonly called Brittle Bone Disease. Osteogenesis Imperfecta is characterized by bones that break easily, often from little or no apparent cause. Jonathan's family would like to use this site to share with others their experiences of having a baby with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI).

Soon after Jonathan was born we searched the Internet trying to find information and help. There was quite a bit of general Osteogenesis Imperfecta information, but little on what life would be like with a newborn living with the disease. We hope this will give you an insight as to the CHALLENGE, JOY and HOPE there is in raising a baby with OI.

On this site we will share some of our favorite photos of Jonathan, update his progress month by month in different areas and share information that we have found helpful. It is for parents and family members of other OI babies and for anyone who would like to learn a little bit about this disease.
