Dear FACES Community,
I am delighted to share an update on Kiall's journey: Kiall has an infectious positive attitude and outlook on life. He has an incredible love for tools and working with his hands, showcasing his unique approach to the world around him. His enthusiasm for life has not only inspired me but has also touched the hearts of everyone he encounters. He has become best friends with everyone in his 3rd grade class. The support and acceptance he has received from his peers has contributed immensely to his sense of belonging and self-esteem.
Reflecting on the past nine years, we've navigated through countless doctor appointments, surgeries, and health challenges. Despite everything, Kiall has emerged triumphant with a positive attitude, even conquering the hurdle of breaking his femur not once, but twice at two separate times. His enthusiasm for disassembling his wheelchair after healing serves as a testament to his resilience and spirit.
As a parent, I vividly recall the questions that filled my mind when Kiall was born – Will he be okay? What should I do? What does this mean for his future? The answers unfolded gradually: have faith, and time has a remarkable way of healing.
As a small family of three—Kiall, his sister Adriana, and myself—we want to express our heartfelt appreciation to the FACES community for the financial support you provided so we could travel to his craniofacial medical team 3 hours from home. Your organization has been a beacon of hope and strength for us during times of uncertainty. The sense of community and understanding FACES has fostered has profoundly impacted our lives, and we are eternally grateful.
Best wishes this holiday season,
Cori White & Family
Remember when you first met Kiall?
Conoce nuestra pequeña bendición, Kiall.
Nació con una condición rara llamada Síndrome de Apert . Es un chico dulce y duro que es excelente para hacer lo que los bebés hacen mejor ...
Trayendo alegría a nuestras vidas!
La sorpresa y la lucha son reales. Tenía miedo de escuchar el diagnóstico de mi hijo poco después de su nacimiento. ¿Qué significó esto para nuestra familia? ¿Va a estar bien? ¿Que necesito hacer? Estas preguntas fueron formuladas, pero no respondidas. Finalmente, después de buscar información en Internet, encontré FACES y pude llamar y obtener respuestas a mis preguntas. ¡También descubrí que FACES podría ayudar financieramente! ¡Sentí un alivio inconmensurable por el cual estoy TAN agradecido!
¡Gracias a todos los seguidores de FACES!
