Merry Christmas From

December 25, 2011 — 4 Comments

2011 has been an amazing year. Especially the last month or so! I had been looking forward to starting for a long time, so finally getting it out into the world has been so much fun. By far, the best part has been getting to hear from all of you! Your comments and emails really do mean the world to me. As much as I enjoy trying to be funny (with mixed results, I’m sure), this endeavor is all about you. All of you. Grown-ups with limb differences, parents of LD kids, LD kids, grandparents, friends…seriously, anyone who values people and believes we are all made the way we are for a reason; this is for you.

I wanted to take a second, too, to say thanks to everyone for sharing this site and the Facebook page. You’re awesome! I especially want to mention Jen at and Molly at and Jana at and Tony Memmel…thank you all for being so supportive and sharing your influence with me. And thanks to Brene Brown for helping me to start living whole-heartedly.

So, here’s to 2012. Let’s make it incredible!


Merry Christmas from the Haacks!

  1. Thanks so much Ryan! Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family. Also, thank you for opening your world to us. Your sense of humor is the kind of humor we believe in. Also, I appreciate you stepping out there to share lessons and examples Jordan will be able to use as she grows up. If she doesn’t have something she can figure out (which hasn’t happened yet), you’ll be one of the first people we’ll ask! Have a fabulous holiday. I can’t wait to see what kind of amazing things we can make happen in 2012.

    • Thanks so much, Jen! You’ve been an inspiration to me, as has Jordan. I love reading about and seeing your adventures! One of my goals for 2012 is to meet you guys in person. Let’s make it happen! 🙂

  2. Merry Christmas, Ryan! I love your blogging and your videos. Thank you for all of your support. Have a great evening.


    • Thanks, Tony! You’re easy to support. 🙂 Good luck in the new year and I look forward to having a drink and watching some more football again sometime soon!
