May "Local" Apert Gathering

One Saturday back in May, Jack and I traveled about 3 hours east to meet up with some other children and adults with Apert syndrome. We had a blast. if you'll remember, last year, Jack was not feeling well when we traveled. This year he was feeling good. He enjoyed wandering around a lot. One of the coolest things was how he really took to Morgan. Well it's not exactly unusual for Jack to like a pretty girl. What was super cool is that Morgan really liked Jack too and she did not seem to mind the "love that tackles." (When Jack hugs other kids, he often knocks them down.)

Here they are....it's Teeter and Cat. Without Teeter, there would be no Teeter's page and the world just would not be the same!

This is apparently how Miss Carmen Rae wished to be remembered....

Jack and Jack meet again with Nicki and Morgan looking on....

I really like this picture of Liz....good job, Carmen!

Susie, Rebecca, and Morgan on the swing....

Let's see now, what am I gonna do about this?

Isn't this a cute picture of Nicki? Swing, swing!

Posers!

This is what love looks like...

Most of the gang.....

hello! i found your blog by searching for dr. fearon on google. i was born with a craniofacial birth defect - encephalocele (i was born without a bone for the bridge of my nose basically) and had my last surgery at medical city dallas when i was 16. seeing those pictures in dr. fearon's waiting room is just chilling to me. so many memories there.

i am 22 now & reading a few of your blog entries, tears are just floating in my eyes. i can relate to your stories, and i'm sure my parents can too. it's tough! but through great surgeons like dr. fearon and with the Lord on our side.. we can get through anything! jack is an amazing little man and he's going to be such a warrior when he's older. i know i've overcame a lot and everyone always tells me how strong of a person i am.

blessings,
sarah =)

Ceau. Ma numesc K├╝rti Lajos si sunt din Romania. Fetita mea Elena Luiza are 1 luna si s-a nascut cu sindrom Apert. Va rog sa ma indrumati catre o organizatie sau Fundatie care sa ne ajute sa ne salvam copilul. In Romania sistemul de sanatate nu deconteaza integral operatiile iar veniturile familiei sunt de 600 dolari / luna. Va multumim. Mi id is diliu32@yahoo.com
