I value the way Sherry encourages JJ and Daisy to find things in common with Caroline to show that they are more alike than different. I often watch in awe as she takes various opportunities to demystify Caroline's condition. JJ and Daisy are incredibly sweet to Caroline. They approach spending time with her as they would any other child her age. Caroline LOVES them (she is all smiles and giggles around them!).
The International Rett Syndrome Foundation has a wonderful children's coloring book explaining Rett Syndrome. Please click here to download the short book.
Below are some pictures of Caroline's friendship with JJ and Daisy.
JJ meeting Caroline for the first time (January 2010). Daisy is in the picture too!
Caroline, Daisy, and JJ watching a video (January 2011)
Caroline and Daisy smiling at each other (May 2011). This picture was taken a year ago when Caroline started quickly losing skills. She was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome a couple of weeks later.
