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.

School days..

Abby's teacher emailed me this picture of Abby and classmate the other day.  Aren't' they adorable?  

I am so relieved that Abby is doing so well at school.  First of all, she is just so excited and happy to be there.  We run into kids all the time who say "hi" to her when we are out and about.  It makes her giggle that she has so many friends of her own.  We have been so blessed that she has always been placed with wonderful teachers who have her best interest at heart.  I think she will be even more exciting when she has a communication device that will allow her to participate and communicate at a whole new level.  After the holidays, PRC (the company supplying Abby's communication device) will be doing a training for Wes, myself, her therapists, and her teachers.  That's a lot of people committed to helping Abby be successful with this device:) I think it will be coming SOON!  That would be the best Christmas present ever!!!  Well, not really.  The best Christmas present ever would be a cure for Rett Syndrome, but a communication device would be pretty darn wonderful!
