September is Craniofacial Acceptance Month!

Thanks to my support group in my online birth club for notifying me of some very exciting news - September is Craniofacial Acceptance Month! This seems especially fitting as Miss Sunshine has her first visit at Shriner's hospital on September 2nd. I am hoping this is a good portent as far as getting her surgery approved.

One of the members of my support group created a GREAT picture in honor of this month. I have added it to the blog on the upper right hand side. All of you mommies who have babies with any kind of craniofacial deformity, please feel free to snag it for yourselves!

Take a little time in the month of September to make some people around you aware of the difficulties children with craniofacial deformities experience in everyday life.


  1. Hello! My name is Annie Reeves and I am the Program Director for Children's Craniofacial Association. I saw your blog on my Google Alert this morning. CCA started Craniofacial Acceptance Month 5 years ago and I'm so excited you are aware of this very important month. We have Craniofacial Acceptance Month packets with information about how to contact your local radio/tv stations and newspapers. We also have posters you can hang in offices, schools, etc...AND new in 2009, we are rubber selling bracelets for $1. They are like the LiveStrong bracelets and come in blue, teal, lime green, orange and purple. They say and beyond the face is a heart. If you have any questions, you can contact me at or by calling our office. 800-535-3643. Thank you!

  2. I like your blog. I linked to it from BBC, 2/09.
