Syl has written a weekly column in Margriet about 'Hannah de Pannah', her disability and role in the family in recent years.
Publication of the VNU 2001 of columns that Syl wrote for Margriet. For Hannah, as she lacks words
Within a year I was the mother of two girls , of which the oldest was deteriorating every week due to her brain-damaging form of epilepsy and the youngest was developing full speed. I loved my girls but with Hannah that love was always tied to sadness and that made it complicated. It was difficult to accommodate those two extremes in my life. Things got better after the birth of my youngest, but it remained an unusual family. Writing about this in this woman Magezine Margriet was fantastic.
Hopefully, by writing about Children with special we can join forces so a society will emerge that is experienced as supportive in raising children like Hannah..
