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.

Today, we took advantage of the break from the rain and took a walk. We found a great trail not too far from our house, perfect for checking out all the fall colors before it's too late. We got some great photos of the kids. You wouldn't know it from looking at the pictures, but Abby was VERY upset when we started walking. Like, lets just go home, upset. After about five minutes, she was laughing. Her mood swings today are making me dizzy. She did the same thing at therapy this afternoon. She's ecstatic one minute, devastated the next. I have to remind myself that it is so much more aggravating for her not to be able to communicate than it is for me. But, my goodness, the mood swings.

  1. She is beautiful, Ann Marie! I love those pictures. And - I know that trail! :) We should go together sometime...if we can find a time before the weather gets cold. Eliana would love to go for a walk with Abby, I am sure!
