This blog is for and about our little girl, Becca. Becca was born with low muscle tone and has been consistently behind in her development. She's now six years old and doesn't walk or talk or feed herself. In 2010 Becca was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome, a neurological disorder caused by a genetic mutation.
We've wanted to have somewhere to record everything that's happening in her life, but kept avoiding putting it all on the family blog because if we said everything we wanted to it'd overload that blog and no other news would get through.
So here we are. Nobody in the world should feel obligated to read this blog. It's here partly in the hopes that it will help someone else who's having a similar experience to ours, partly to let those who are interested know more about the specifics of Becca's life, and partly because we love to write about our unique, beautiful, perfectly imperfect little girl.
