Melanie's beautiful daughter Alma has Williams syndrome. This syndrome is known for striking verbal abilities, highly social personalities and an affinity for music. The adjective "elfin" may have originated to describe the facial features of people with Williams syndrome; before Williams syndrome's scientific cause was understood, people believed that individuals with the syndrome, who have charming and kind personalities in comparison to most people, had extraordinary, even magical, powers. This is often believed to be the origin of the folklore of elves, fairies and other forms of the 'good people' or 'wee folk' present in English folklore.

This IIE is a celebration of all that is amazing about her.


Interesting is everywhere.
