Emelyn is a social butterfly with a giggle that brings a smile to the face of every person she meets. Emmy, as she’s affectionately known by most, loves water, music, books, and people. She’s yet to meet a stranger. Despite the lack of verbal language, she has developed an extensive vocabulary of sign language and loves when others sign with her. Her parents attribute early, intensive ABA therapy to Emelyn’s development of sign language and her smooth transition into a mainstream public elementary school.
After two years of diagnoses that didn’t quite fit, the DDX3X diagnosis has allowed Emmy’s family to connect with other families whose beautiful children share the very same smiles, expressions, and laughs as their Emelyn.
Emelyn is fortunate to have countless supporters, with her sisters Aubrey and Hattie, as her biggest fans. To learn more about Emelyn’s journey of hope, love, and giggles visit raisingemelyngrace.blogspot.com.
Braylee was born February 2, 2014. Pregnancy was normal, but she decided to make her appearance at 36 weeks. She spent 3 weeks in the NICU due to failure to thrive, low blood sugar, breathing abnormalities and two different CHDs.
We finally got her diagnosis in November 2015. We have since become part of an amazing group of families and caretakers. Lena recently celebrated her 2nd birthday by learning how to crawl!
