Our Story



Heather and Kate are moms, teachers, and aspiring authors. Someone Special Uniquely Personalized Books came about when it was time for Heather's daughter, Maya, to go off to preschool. Maya was born with a rare metabolic condition called Propionic Acidemia, and Heather was concerned about her teacher and classmates understanding the condition and accepting that Maya is no different than anyone else. Heather created a personalized book for Maya that she was able to take to school with her and have the teacher read to the class. Kate thought if this could help ease Heather's anxiety, and make Maya so happy, then it could do the same for millions of other parents and children out there. Heather and Kate are now on a mission to help all kids everywhere, to teach kindness, acceptance, confidence, and respect.
