A Project Celebrating Differences and Triumphs
Morgan is Beautifully Different
Today I am honored to introduce Morgan. Morgan is one of the sweetest 12 year old girls I have ever met, who is (in the words of her Mother) Beautifully wonderfully made! Morgan has faced many challenges in short amount of time that she has been alive. Morgan was born with a unilateral cleft lip and palate, no left hip socket and eczema. At 9 months old she was diagnosed with multiple food allergies, and at age 12 was diagnosed with severe idiopathic short stature syndrome. (she is short but may never grow past 4’8”). She has had 10 surgeries to date, most of which required hospital stays.
Morgan is so Beautifully Different!
Life for Morgan is a little different than most of her peers. She has to miss a lot of school for doctor appointments every 4 weeks. Kids tend to notice her scars and her skin can be a big issues people think she has a disease. Food allergies pretty much control a lot of where Morgan can eat, not a lot of restaurants are very allergy friendly. Speech is another issue as some people can’t understand her. A lot of her peers don’t like to invite her over because they are afraid to.
Morgan is More than her Differences
Morgan doesn’t let her differences keep her from being a happy pre-teen! She is friendly and kind. She has three sisters who love her dearly and two amazing parents. Morgan has an incredible support system who would do anything for her! She is a fun, outgoing, lovable girl who has turned a lot of her issues into learning experiences. Her Mom says her heart is bigger then her and that Morgan is their old soul!!
Morgans strength and resilience are inspiring. I have known her since she was a little girl and I have just loved watching her grow in to this amazing person! Morgan leaves a wave of good vibes wherever she goes, we need more people like Morgan in this world!
Morgan Is Strong
