Emilia was born January 20th, 2017. Testing began after not meeting the 18 month milestones. She received a SynGAP1 diagnosis in March of 2019.

Emilia loves her big sister and Daddy. She is very active, loves to climb everything and anything. She loves hugs and snuggles. Emilia is a very sweet girl who also loves getting into trouble.

Emilia suffers from myoclonic absence seizures. They have been reduced with valproic acid. She has sleep distributions, will wake 2-3nights a week and be wide awake. She has no words. For the most part she is a sweet little girl, but she does get very frustrated when she doesn't get what she needs or what she is asking for. When she is in her worst moments she bites herself or me, and hits her head against things.

We love our sweet Emilia very much. Our family would not be the same without her.

- Lesley (Mom)
