Robyn's son, Sam, is the inspiration behind Embrace the Difference. When Sam was two years old, he was not speaking and she knew there was something wrong. Speech therapy and ear tubes helped Sam catch up, but then in kindergarten, he was diagnosed with ADHD. As the years went on, learning disabilities started to surface, and he finally he was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome at age 14.
But Sam has an amazing gift. He has an astounding ability to read people’s emotions. Many have taken Sam under their wing through the years, embracing and accepting his differences. Because of this, Sam was able to grow into the amazing young man he is today.
A poem about a mother's love inspired Robyn to create the Embrace the Difference symbol: a single square embraced by circles, and the jewelry line was soon to follow. The mission behind this unique brand is to give back to the types of organizations that helped Sam flourish.
