Grateful Sunday

I am grateful for the many surgeons who gave of their time and skills to give me the opportunity to have a more comfortable adulthood.  The long term reward for undergoing so many surgeries throughout my youth is felt every day in better breathing, better vision, better hearing and a stronger more functional physical body.  One of my surgeons told me when I was 8 years old that one day I would thank him (I did not realize as a child going through the surgeries what the reward could possibly ever be).  Now, 36 years later I understand and appreciate their efforts.

  1. The words that you share are so very inspirational to other children with craniofacial differences as well as their parents. Speaking as a parent, I'm glad to know that you still have a hopeful spirit and are serving others through your story.
