Bonjour à Votre Belle Famille,
Votre histoire est la notre. Maëlle va avoir 14 ans, le syndrome de Baraitser winter a été diognostiqué il y a 4 ans. Suite à une recherche génétique, Maëlle a le chromosome 1 abimé. Si elle a toujours eut du mal à s'endormir,
aujourd'hui, elle ne dort plus, elle est si exité. Comment avez vous géré les nuit Erine ? avez vous un traitement médical pour qu'elle s'endorme ? Nos médecins ne trouve rien qui ne "fonctionne" vraiment ...Il y a beaucoup de ressemblence physique entre Erine
et Maëlle ... deux belles filles qui nous donnent tant d'amour.
Bien à vous.

My cousin's son was diagnosed with BARAITSER WINTER SYNDROME in Virginia this week. He is a twin. My cousin is online a lot and not familiar with anyone with this illness either.

Hi! Thank you for sharing Erin's story. I am trying to reach Dr. Dobyn's and just left a message with hopefully the right place. I believe my almost 5 year old Brandon may also have Baraitser-Winters syndrome. He has always been small, has coloboma of
the irises, ptosis of his eyelids and has also just started falling to the floor. My husband is always in denial and does not want to do further testing but I feel as though we need to know. My son is very intelligent and is in Child Development (preschool)
but I have noticed some behavior issues mostly towards my husband. We also have three other sons with no issues. Sorry for the rambling and hope to hear from you and Dr. Dobyn's. Thank you, Jennifer

I had the good fortune to meet Erin at the Paris Fair. She draws you to her, she has such a gentle spirit and I felt privileged to have met her. I was particularly touched when she gave me a hug when she left. I love your blog and look forward to reading
