Hello. My name is Abby. I'm eight years old and I was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome when I turned two. My parents work hard to help me make sense of the world around me and this blog is meant to help others understand my world and my journey with Rett Syndrome.

Abby is at home again today because she had a rough night last night. She is on medicine, which I think is keeping her up. She's not crying, but not sleeping either. I didn't want to send her to school sleepy, so she stayed home. I'm a little bummed because today was picture day and the first day her class gets to go to the pool. Her class gets to use the school's pool once a month. She loves the water, so she'll have a blast.

I am posting a photo that Abby's teacher sent home last week. She is using a spinning switch to say the (prerecorded) Pledge of Allegiance over the intercom at school. How cool is that? She looks like one proud little girl.


  1. I hope she's feeling better soon. Where is she going to school? She looks so proud!

  2. Hey Michelle!
    It's good to hear from you. I have enjoyed reading about your journey abroad. It sounds like you all are making the best of the experience. The photos with the kids on the camels are adorable. Abby is definitely feeling better tonight. She goes to Churchill Park School. She has such a great team working with her. It's awesome!

  3. I am so proud of her, she is such a big girl now!
