We were born #PerfectlyImperfect #MightyTogether

Inside each of us is a beating heart. Inside each of us is a set of veins that carries blood through our systems and keeps us alive! Inside each of us is a nervous system, that transmits signals when triggered.
We were born #PerfectlyImperfect!
We were #BornThisWay. And you know what, #Youreok just as you are!
There's absolutely no one else like you. There's no one else that this world needs than what YOU can give it.
When you were born, the world said #AStarIsBorn!

Dogs Don’t Count Chromosomes

This basket of hope recipient is soaking up some puppy love! The best thing about dogs is the way they love and nourish us, no matter who we are or how we’re born.

Another day

It’s just another day. The expectations are all in your mind. The day doesn’t have to be perfect. It can be what you want it to be, anything you want. If you want to stay in bed all day and do nothing, do it. If you want to eat your body weight in chocolate, do it. If you don’t, don’t. Be you, do you and it doesn’t matter if you aren’t sure who that is. To hell with expectations of society, expectations from family and friends. Do what makes you happy.

Curious Children

I was born w/ #congenital facial bone anomalies. I've had many reconstructive surgeries & am generally happy w/ my appearance. Recently I started volunteering as a reader at a preschool. It's been a really great experience! Today, student asked me what was wrong w/ my face and told me "eyes are supposed to be close together, not spread apart" then asked if his eyes looked like mine. I'm no stranger to this comment, especially from kids, they are genuinely curious. I gave him my typical response "I was #BornThisWay " to which he replied, "Oh, I was born this way" (pointed to his own face).
