Taylor's Story

Taylor’s father and I started to realize something was different about her at a very young age. At six months we begged the pediatrician to send us to Shriners to have her feet checked (Metatarsus Adductus). When we finally seen the doctors at Shriners they displayed some concerns about Taylor’s development. We figured we would get answers quickly and be able to get her the help she needed. It wasn’t until she was 18 years old that we would finally get answers. May, 10 2018 she finally was given a diagnosis of MED13L after having the microarray analysis done. Even know we didn’t have a diagnosis we pushed for her to get all the resources she needed to be as successful as she could. Today she does very well for herself, she has a job that she works a few hours a week, she has many opportunities socially, and she receives several resources that continue to push her to a better life.
