Pearl Joy Brown Posted: January 23, 2018 by Leslie, Sammy's mom Last week, Pearl Joy Brown’s dad, Eric Brown, was asked to speak at a conference in Washington, DC. Thank you, Eric, for sharing your humble spirit, your sincere and heartfelt words, and your beautiful photos. Share the HoPE in HoloprosecephalyTweetEmailPrintLike this:Like Loading...

My condolences to the family and all those, including myself, that her story impacted. What a lovely tribute to your little girl. It’s so, so sad that doctors are still implying that there could not be any quality of life for a child like Pearl, or my daughter, or any of the children with HPE and so many other health and/or neurological differences. They don’t understand that our little ones (and big ones!) feel and give love, and that is the essence of humanity and gives life not only meaning but also quality.
