Thank you for sharing her beautiful story. My daughter was diagnosed when she was 2 years old. Our journey is just beginning she just turned 3, so we are learning as we go.. It's scary not knowing what the future has to bring, but this definitely helps.. I would love to connect one day face to face with all the parents and children going through this. I think it would be a beautiful experience. Please feel free to reach out. Thank you again!

Thank you so much for this website. My daughter is 12 and has this syndrome as well. She wasn't diagnosed until she was 11. I remember the relief we felt when we finally had a name to put all her symptoms together.She is the most beautiful girl with such a loving spirit. Please feel free to reach out.

Thank you for sharing your story. It’s so helpful. My friend’s child has this syndrome and I am trying to educate myself on this topic so I can be more aware. I wanted to get his teenage son (13/14 yrs old) a gift but I don’t know what to get him. You mentioned there are varying degrees with intectual development so I’m not sure what would be appropriate. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Hey everyone! Thanks for sharing your story, it's heartwarming. My daughter is a 1 year old who was just diagnosed with BWS at Boston Children's Hospital (Boston, MA). Our doctors have been incredible, and our geneticist has two other patients with BWS. My wife and I live near Worcester, MA with our daughter and her 2 year old brother. We are just beginning our journey with BWS and would be happy to connect with others, especially those in the area!

Read your blog and Erin story so closely resembles my son Jonathans story. He was recently diagnosed with this syndrome after 31 years of searching what fits him best. Its a journey that changes daily.

Hi everyone,

We received our sons diagnosis of Baraitser-Winter Syndrome on Monday (two days ago). He is only 18 minths old and has been under genetic investigation since birth given his multiple medical conditions and appearance. We live in Sydney, Australia and i'm wondering if anyone reading this is also from Australia. We would love to connect with other families from all over with regards to Baraitser-Winter Syndrome as the info we, and our geneticist, have found is very limited.

My son Eldon was just diagnosed with BWS 2 weeks ago. He has been tested his whole life so to find an answer for half of what is wrong with him was huge to us. I would love to hear from anyone else that is facing this diagnosis as I can't find much info on it and his doctor that ordered the testing that lead to his diagnosis is not very familiar with it either. I am so confused by it all right now. My email is selfpatricia@aol.com and my facebook is patricia self or puzzled miracles

I would love to talk with anyone who is dealing with this. Please feel free to reach out to me. My name is Heidi. You can contact me at heidiruedinger@hotmail.com.

Hello all.
My middle child, Lily (06/02/14), was diagnosed with pachygyria and polymicrogyria at 15 months old. We are currently going through genetics as ts believed that BWS is the cause if this! It's so nice to read similar stories with these conditions being so rare! Lily is very delayed. She too has hearing loss. She has a lot of respiratory problems and other health conditions that I won't bore you with right now however if you would like to connect with us ill add lilys facebook group which is "lilys fight against pachygyria and polymicrogyria" at the bottom :) best wishes to you all x
