Review for Barth Syndrome Foundation Inc, Larchmont, NY, USA
When we got the diagnosis for Caleb there was an overwhelming feeling of isolation. A feeling like nobody "got it", nobody knew what we were feeling and facing. We were overwhelmed and exhausted from all the research we were trying to do. Caleb was given a diagnosis that in a sense is invisible to most people. The world would not understand our challenges, they wouldn't feel our pain and joy from the smallest bit of progress. The weight of this diagnosis, the uncertainty of his future, it stole our breath and exhausted us. And then we found the Barth Syndrome Foundation. We found a community, a family that live in this same world we'd entered, that understood our pain and our fears, a family that could give us resources and real life experiences. Finding the foundation gave us comfort and hope and strength that we needed to continue on the journey alongside Caleb.
