Vanessa Vaughan is a work-at-home-mom of two really incredible children. It is the journey of her youngest son, Braxton, that thrust her in to the special needs world as Braxton was undiagnosed for two years before finding a rare diagnosis of Rubinstein-Taybi Syndrome. His older sister, Aileen, has been amazing with her little brother and has recently had her own struggles with Sensory Processing Disorder. Through Braxton’s diagnostic journey, Vanessa met a local non-profit, U.R. Our Hope, that specializes in helping families with Undiagnosed and Rare medical disorders and she now serves on their Board of Directors.
