Celebrating the Abilities of our Angels

By Suki Sandhu, Mom to Sydney age 19

sydney7We did not receive an official diagnosis for Sydney until she was 15 years old. I always knew there was something more than just being developmentally delayed. Physician after Physician did not know. The diagnosis was not going to change anything about Sydney, it was for me. It helped me understand and was therapeutic for my 15 years of unanswered questions.

To do my part and help raise awareness, I had the opportunity to speak with the medical staff of Great Ormond Street Hospital and reminded them that the diagnosis is as important for the parents.

Sydney1Sydney loves going to the movies, we take her at least once a month. She loves musicals on Broadway, searching YouTube videos on her iPad, going to the park with a zip wire and walking the dog.
