This is a quote from another Rett mamma, Elizabeth – it is a part of the Army Of Us Rett Syndrome Awareness Campaign. All month long they are sharing amazing facts, links, photos, and of course amazing quotes. This one sort of sucker punched me. It is something that as a mom I think about […]

Rett Syndrome is sort of known as a “girl thing.” RSRT published a great blog post talking about “Why Girls?” I encourage you to check out that post by clicking HERE.

Many people do not realize that a child can indeed have BOTH Down Syndrome AND Autism. I figure images like this will spark conversation which will lead […]

Hope.

Hope.

Let that sink in for a second. How much hope does this statement give you? For me it is overwhelming!

Researchers refer to Rett Syndrome as a “Pandora’s […]

A Day Off (no, out - well off too!)

A Day Off (no, out – well off too!)

I apologize for not posting yesterday but I had a day Off I mean out…..well I was “off” too. Kristin and I took off for Southbend. Unfortunately our game tickets fell through but Notre Dame on game day is always a fun place to be. It is a HUGE bonus that our aunt lives there […]

Videos from 2008

I am really not for sure why I decided to check out my old youtube channel but I did, and I cried. As far as an awareness post today…..well…..as a mother it heartbreaking to watch your daughter work so hard to gain skills and then again to lose skills. I long to have my sweet […]
