My cousin has William's Syndrome, which is very rare. I was told that it is similar to Down's Syndrome. She B"H is a really great girl, very sweet, and plays the piano amazingly. I was wondering if anyone ever encountered people with this--like you're related to someone or you child goes to school with them or some such thing. I know about William's Syndrome medically, but I never encountered people with it or their relatives (other than my own). I know that someday I will be the one to take care of her because my grandparents had three children, all passed childbearing age now. One has no children, I am an only child, and my aunt has my cousin and another boy who is quite disabled as well.
Feel free to email me or post.
