  1. Hi Vanessa,

    Just heard about Emmy today from Pam through the therapists. In a way I feel like I abandoned you and Emmy but know that I think about you often and frequently view the videos you sent me. If there is anything you need don’t hesitate to call,email or text me. Emmy is a strong little girl and stubborn too if i remember correctly. I believe in my heart she will get through this and will keep her, you and the rest of the family in my thoughts and prayers

  2. Hi Vanessa,
    I just read your post on Tiny Buddha. I loved the story of the little girl who didn’t give up and your writing style. Thank you for sharing it. A part of me thought, “A recovering perfectionist with a child with special needs. Hmmm. Can the Universe have set it up better?” 😉


  3. Hi Vanessa,
    What a fabulous story in Tiny Buddha about the little girl trying to climb the playground wall. It made me cry and was hugely impactful. Thank you.

  4. I am so happy Emmy is home. It was very rewarding to see her come so far these past few weeks. You guys are wonderful, keep up the good work, she would not be where she is today without the love and dedication you have given her. Best wishes to all of you, keep us updated of her progress!!!
    God Bless

  5. Hi Vanessa – This is Linda Fitzgerald, Megan’s mom. I read your articles and they brought happy tears to my eyes. I work in a school that is the district magnet school for special needs kids – some very severe – and I also get such joy when I see a Down’s syndrome child smile or other special needs kids laugh and giggle. It makes my day. Your daughter is beautiful. Your writing is sublime and unique in its voice. I would like to share the article with my co-workers and some parents if that is ok with you. Keep writing….

    • Thank you for visiting my blog! I’m so touched to hear about your experiences with kids with special needs. I probably wouldn’t have ventured into the world of special needs if it hadn’t been for Emmy, and I am SO thankful that she brought me here. Of course, please feel free to share the article. Thank you!

  6. So glad you (all) are still with us. You are a strong and couragous person, and an inspiration to all your ‘fans’.

  7. Hi Vanessa,
    Just thinking about you, how is everything going? Wishing you and your family all the best 🙂
