JUST ARRIVING FROM THE CUTE SYNDROME BLOG?
I am Hillary--mother of Esmé, a.k.a. The Cute, and Cute Syndrome blogger. I'll be writing here from now on--about Esmé and all sorts of other things. But, don't worry...all your favorite posts are still there. They haven't gone anywhere! Check out my welcome to the blog. And keep scrolling to learn more about me...
I am Hillary. I’m a lot of things: a PhD, a writer, a non-profit founder, a mixer of oddball cocktails...But most importantly? I am the mom of a ridiculously fun, goofy, determined, and super cute five-year-old girl named Esmé. Esmé is my best buddy, my muse, and my teacher. Esmé is also medically-fragile, severely developmentally-delayed, and a bit of a scientific mystery. When I am not watching Yo Gabba Gabba, hitting the boxing gym, or emailing one of our two dozen doctors or therapists, I am writing about Esmé and working to raise money for medical research through the Cute Syndrome Foundation.
PRAISE FOR MY WRITING
“Clear, resonate, well-paced, and, often irrepressible, Hillary Savoie’s memoir shows us how love, even desperation, can drive the quest of science, and unearth a power of salvation. In the process, she proves to be the best kind of science writer—one with nerve.”
Jim Kozubek, Author of Modern Prometheus: Editing the Human Genome with Crispr-Cas9
“Most love falls between constraints, always conditional, always defined. What I see between this mother and her child transcends that. I don’t have a name for it, it defies definition in the concrete but it is beautiful to watch as it speaks to the limitless of our capacity to feel.”Brent Stirton, Getty Images
If you want to talk about cocktails, my questionable boxing skills, or just tell me abut how adorable my daughter is, I'd be thrilled to hear from you.
Also, if you have questions about articles, speaking engagements, or workshops, that's great too! Drop me an email or find me spending too much time on social media:
