The Adventures of Jetson


Here are some of the messages Jetson has received, and others messages congratulating us on his birth. You can send you own message.

Hi all. Just to let you know. I am 58yrs and was born with arthogryposis.
Life's good . Time served engineer 2 kids and just building my own business. Jeff Jaques (Apr 2013)

Hi, your little boy Jetson is gorgeous and very inspiring. Thank you for sharing your story. We adopted a little boy in May this year who is unable to walk due to having arthrogryposis.  Our son is 3 years old. He has it in his feet, knees, hips and mild in shoulders. We are from Melbourne, Australia. We wish Jetson all the best for the future. Kind regards Wendy (Oct 2012)

Hi Jetson, I live in Adelaide and I have a little boy, Rufus, who is nine months old and has had some adventures similar to yours in his life. I was so excited to see your photos and to read about your story and your family. Rufus also has had splints for his hips and currently for his feet. His elbows, knees and feet were tucked up tight when he was born, and he has a tight neck muscle on the right side. He is responding well to physiotherapy, and developing his muscle strength, but we don't yet have a diagnosis as to the cause. We are having lots of fun and adventures with our little boy as he grows up and learns to do new things. We look forward to following your adventures as you grow up too. Thanks for sharing.

Hi there you got yourself  a beautiful  boy! I live in anchorage Alaska and my son isaiah was born on aug 8th 2010. He was born with amyoplasia - arthrogryposis as well. He has no movement in his arms at all . Clubbed feet, internally rotated shoulder,  conyractures in both upper and lower extermaties. Always nice to know us parents are not alone in this. God bless your baby boy, and your family!!! Though its hard work its worth it all!! (from yulia, Sept 2012)

I came across your website tonight and have enjoyed seeing Jetson's remarkable journey!  He is a very special boy and I can tell that you all have a wonderful family!  My grandson was born with Arthrogryposis in his arms.  He will be a year old in October!  He is doing well, but I am so encouraged by Jetson and all of the things he has accomplished!  Thank-you so much for sharing your story!  It has really given me hope for my grandson! (Gayle, Sept 2012)

It is obvious that Jetson is a true blessing to your family and to the many who visit your website.  What an amazing little boy!!!  His smile and his story lifted my heart (Suzan Wooden, Sept 2012)

hi there! We thought we invented the name Jettson, that is what we named our son, born nov 13 2010, ha, i had no idea it was a name too . my husband is in physics and there are particles called jets, so we liked that, but wanted a full name, so my husbands name is jeff, so i kept thinking, well, he is jeffs son, jeffson, so then i thought, jettson! so he is jettson james, nice to know there is another with the best name! (from Sunday, Sept 2012)

Hi guys. I found your website on a random search on the net. I was surprised to see you named your son Jetson as we also have one! Our Jetson was born in 2007 and we too liked the name Jet but with a one syllable surname we conjoured up the name Jetson. It certainly is a name that arouses curiousity in those that hear it! My wife also met someone else at the local shops (in Perth Western Australia) with a child named Jettson so there are a few getting around. It sounds like you guys are having a hard time at the moment and I hope things improve very soon. Best wishes to your lovely family, Chris (July 2011)

Hello Jetson, Glad to hear you're doing so well! I LOVE your website, and wish i was as clever as your dad so that i could make one for my kids! You look very very happy, and i hope we can catch up again soon!? Regards, Marcel (July 2010)

Hey Jetson, Just wanted to say hi and tell you we are following your journal on here with lots of love. Keep up the great work buddy. PS you are so totally good looking!! xxHeuchans (July 2010)

I delighted to be included in the progress of Jetson. I have to say that he is a beautful little boy with such good fortune as to have two wonderful people to love and care for him. He is also blessed to a have a lovely little sister who will keep him very stimulated, no doubt. I look forward to hearing more of his progress. Regards NB

Congratulations Rob, Clare & Olive and 'Welcome to the world Jetson'... we are sending you all our love and best wishes. We are really happy for you all and he is in the best family possible!!!! Big hugs and lots of love P, M + 4 xoxoxoxo

Congratulations Clare ... treasure every moment .. second time around I found that the ‘fears’ associated with being a new mother were gone, and I could just savour every moment. Olive is such a beautiful big girl now!Hope to see you soon in Melbourne soon. MIA

Hey congratulations! By my calculations young Jetson is a Melbourne Cup baby. You could hardly call him shocking though. You all look so well. I laugh at Olive holding her smile up. Olive is still on my screen saver. We are in queensland for my sisters wedding. got to keep moving but thanks for the email and looking forward to catching up with Jumbo soon. cheers C McC

Dear Clare. Congratulations to you, Rob and Olive on the arrival of your "mystery man", Jetson. Great news. We are delighted for you. Sorry to hear that you've had to have an unplanned stay at PMH. I'm sure that the amount of love you have for Jetson, coupled with the medical expertise at the hospital will ensure he will overcome whatever obstacles he has to. Stay strong and get as much rest at the hospital as you can. Look forward to your updates and news of Jetson's progress. Here's to a speedy recovery for you too! Thinking of you lots and lots. NH

Dear Clare and Rob. Thank you for sharing the news about Jetson's arrival. Congratulations and a big hug to all four of you. I like his name. I'm curious about how you chose this name. He is so lucky to be born to family who will love him unconditionally and simply adore him like you do Olive. It must be disconcerting  to deal with further exams/tests  of your baby boy but stay informed and reach out for support. Un super Abrazo (hug) RR

Good to hear that he is alert, healthy looking and feeding well which certainly are all positives to keep your thoughts towards an optimistic outcome.
