From the album One House
Ariel is a very real and wonderful young lady living in the Quad Cities. One of 35 known cases of Rett Syndrome in Iowa (an Autistic Spectrum Disorder). She needs care 24/7/365. But...research has shown symptoms of the devastating disease (inability to verbally communicate, can't use hands, etc) are reversible. See her mother's letter on my "Contact" page for more info!
