Cri du Chat Syndrome
When asked about her syndrome, Emily will tell you it’s cry like a cat syndrome or 5p- and that she is missing a small piece of the short arm of her 5th chromosome!
When it was time to write about it, I think the word chromosome scared her so she wrote this instead:
“I don’t see myself different”
This statement is more powerful than anything I could ever write.
