Do you have a family member with special needs? I do. My oldest son, Owen, was born with Angelman Syndrome. It’s a deletion on the maternal 15th chromosome.

He’s completely non-verbal, globally developmentally delayed, has hard to control epilepsy, and eats anything he can get his hands on as a result of Pica. He’s also one amazing kid with a cheerful personality. He’s a fighter—surviving more in his short life than most people have to in a lifetime.
