Hello Everyone,
First thank you for this blog. My son (3yrs) was recently diagnosed with BWS. We are in the trial and error stages with controlling his seizures. I would love to connect with other parents of children wit BWS. We have had our child in so many therapy programs, I would love to here from other parents on things you have tried to maximize your child potential with this syndrome.

Hello all,
We live in Woodland CA, (near Sacramento). We have a nine year old son who was diagnosed with BW about a year and a half ago. So many question, thus I'm certainly looking for a network of others living with BW to help us better understand our son's condition. Any information is greatly appreciated. My best to you all.

Hey everyone,
My family and I live in Metairie Louisiana (close proximity to New Orleans). Our daughter Olivia (3 yrs.) was just diagnosed with BW Syndrome. We have many questions of course, but one for now. Does anyone have children who were born after your child with BW? We would like to have one more baby, but I have to say that I'm pretty nervous now.

Hi, my name is Cheri and I have a grandson who was recently diagnosed. We know little to nothing about this syndrome, or what to expect other than the brief overview from the doctor. We live in Southern Indiana, USA. Do any of your children have digestive issues?

Hi there, my name is Shelley & I live in England. my son, who is 6, has today been diagnosed with Baraitser-Winter. Firstly, thank you so much for this blog, a real people perspective ­čśÇ
Is there anyone out there, who has this syndrome but to a lesser degree? My son doesn't seem to bad, can I expect him to get worse? Have to say, I'm a bit confused, so any information would be greatly received. Many thanks xxx

Hello Yvonne and fam,
My name is Arthur leach and I have a 13 year old little sister who has BWS. Olivias' story is very much like yours. She even looks like erin... ALOT! I have alot of regrets on how I raised my little sister and have questions on how you guys handled Erin. Our home life was a long nasty road for a bit. I would much like to hear from you guys. I think it would much help my conscious.
