Mom writes emotional post about daughter’s rare disorder

In 2007, Gabby Rodriguez was born a healthy, happy girl and began developing on track with her three older siblings.

But about a year and a half later, her mother, Jody, noticed she began regressing; her little girl, who had once been able to say her name and other words typical of toddlers her age, suddenly couldn’t.

Doctors at Cincinnati Children’s diagnosed Gabby with Rett syndrome, a neurological disorder that occurs more commonly in girls.
