Moebius Syndrome

Some images stick with you

Some images stick with you.  I was just thinking about this girl a few of us saw up on a few adoption sites a few years ago, who was born with Moebius syndrome.  I can only hope she’s found a caring family, since she is no longer listed as available, and that family is knowledgeable about Moebius and involved in getting her the services and attention she needs to thrive.  It’s amazing to think how much our lives are pre-determined by our circumstances… and frightening to imagine what the lives of people with Moebius were like many years ago before surgeries for strabismus and club foot, speech therapies, public schools being required to educate all children… every once in a while I have to step back and be thankful for when and where I was born…
