Thank you for inviting me to your meeting. It has been wonderful to meet families and professionals involved with Wolf-Hirschhorn children and to share our experiences.
Dr Nora Shannon, Consultant Clinical Geneticist, Birmingham Women`s Hospital, United Kingdom

Thanks for this opportunity to learn more about WHS, which we have longed for.We will keep in touch in the future. Also this symposium has brought together many Danish WHS families for the first time.
Helle and Henrik Soelund, Denmark

Because of the small amount of welknown WH children in Denmark (10-12pcs), we hope that we Danish people are able to send some questions and/or pictures to the specialist we meet this weekend.
It is our experience that the Danish doctors are only able to tell us about the experience known in the 1974.
Thank you, for telling us about the updated information
Marianne Johansen & Terkel Moeller, Denmark

I am grateful for the opportunity to get know more about problems that affects children with WHS and the way they are solved by professionals and I especially appreciate the possibility to meet the great parents who helps their children to be happy children.

Very inspiring!

Learned a lot,especially about the medicines against epilepsy, but what loved was to meet Max brothers and sisters...

Stephan Hermsen, Germany
A very interesting meeting, thank you for organizing it and getting all the experts together. For me the main message was, that we should not underestimate the abilities of the WHS-Children. And I was delighted to hear, that they have good life-expectation.
For me as a father of a five year old whs-daughter it would be interesting to learn more about how to teach, educate and train a whs-child. If there will be another whscongress (and I do hope so) I would appreciate the presence of some therapeutics. By the way: Is it possible to get a short abstract of the presentation on Sunday-Morning. I would be glad to get one by E-Mail.
Again: It was an important meeting - and it should not be the only one.

Very important meeting for all the parents. Nice day.
Now we are going to eat.
Thank you.

It was a wonderful experience to be here surrounded because of our children. I already thought they were special, and now I know it for sure. I loved the shared attention of the people here. It ties docters to parents, Polish people to Danish and to the other nationalities. I love to see how proud we all are on our children, the beautiful pictures and films. The strongest part of our children is the communication and the social contacts: I think we have shown this weekend that we have learned a lot of our children! I thank you for all the work of organising this!
