Happy 6th Birthday Daphne!! A lot has happened since the last time we campaigned for her. We all took a big leap of faith and moved to Texas! We are now in the Dallas area in a high rated school district. We are closer to children’s hospitals and have created a fantastic relationship with a Neurologist/Rett Specialist as well. Even though it was hard to leave our friends and family in Washington, this move has been the best thing for Daphne. Not only are we nearby top medical care for Rett Syndrome but she started Kindergarten in a thriving school environment. She is accelerating in her eye gaze skills, and also receives therapies including: Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and even Adaptive PE! Her school district has a Special Olympics program she has participated in throughout the school year as well! This is a great opportunity for kids of all abilities┬áto show off what they can do. Not only does she have a great experience in her disability classroom but she also has a typical Kindergarten teacher and classroom she is included in throughout the day. She started having seizures about a year ago and even though it can be a scary new adventure, they have thankfully been well controlled. We are so proud of how much she loves her family and school and despite her struggles,┬ákeeps rocking that smile! We recently finished our pool in the backyard for her to splash around in too which she absolutely loves.

We love this girl just the way she is although of course wish she had all of the same opportunities other kids her age have, so join us in supporting Rett Syndrome Research Trust to help find a cure! Thanks for being a big part of Daphne’s life journey!
