What makes Gael Xtraordinary to you?
Our family relocated overseas a year ago — all that was familiar became distant and very faraway, which is very stressful for people with Fragile X who rely on consistency and routine. During this past year, Gael has adjusted to a new country, new home, new school, new peers … new everything, but he is thriving!
Now surrounded by extended family and a much slower pace of life, we see him doing things that were beyond challenging or near impossible before. He has become more comfortable in the community, he is making connections with peers, and attending busy sporting events. We are so proud of how Xtraordinary he is, and make sure to tell him that every night before he goes to sleep.
