Avery's Story

I was born on New Years Eve, 2011 and have been full of fireworks ever since. It became clear I was a very special little girl when my family noticed I was not progressing normally by my first birthday. I started in all kinds of therapies, saw all kinds of doctors, and was diagnosed with autism just after my 2nd birthday, and Rett Syndrome at 4 1/2. I love swinging, swimming, music, affection, surprising people, animals of all kinds (especially my dogs), Dora the Explorer, and Diego. I am adored by my parents, my grandparents, my aunts, uncles, cousins, and especially my siblings. My older sister is my best friend and advocate, and my younger brother is especially fun to pick on (as all older sisters love to do). I am smart, and have so much to say with my eyes and my emotions. I hear we are so close to a cure for this disease that traps me inside of myself, and I cannot wait to share with you my true voice when that day comes.
