child story



Harvey is 15 years old and has Angelman syndrome

His favourite colours are pink and yellow

He enjoys playing hide and seek under a blanket and chase in the park, he also enjoys swimming and water play

He has two cats called Jeeves and Wooster

The family had a completely wild kitten that scratched and bit all of them. But he played with Harvey beautifully

He laughs when he is being cheeky and is doing something he knows he shouldn’t do

His family’s proudest moment was when Harvey first walked at the age of 4. Also when he showed a real concern for a crying baby (his little brother)

Funniest moment: when he puts the blanket over his head he really thinks he is invisible
