Caroline is our sweet 4 1/2 Year old princess. She has struggled with delays since her premature birth in 2006. Caroline has been in intensive weekly therapy since she was 16months old. around 3 1/2 caroline started to zone out and interact less and less with those around her. After many tests and trips to specialists, On March 14th, 2011 Caroline was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome. Rett Girls are called "Silent Angels", as most do not have the ability to speak.
Caroline is an A-typical Angel, she does walk (and even run), she has use of her hands and even has some ability to speak (although limited). I am VERY hopeful she can keep these skills and even gain some more. We are Blessed with a wonderful CREW....an AMAZING TEACHER, WONDERFUL therapists, and the support of so many friends and family! There are so many wonderful advancements and studies being conducted, and these give me hope for a real future for our SWEET girl, but none of it can happen without funding!
