On September 11, 2016, my son Logan and I had the privilege of attending an event at the Dallas Museum of Art to hear a phenomenal speech from a gentleman named Robert Hoge. Robert was born in 1972 in Australia, and graciously shares his story in a memoir called "Ugly" that was written in a format for youth, teens and young adults. However, "I" am already enjoying my copy, and Logan is looking forward to reading it as well.
Like many of us families who are affected by craniofacial differences, he too, shares his journey of overcoming the struggles that life has thrown at him.
Here is Logan getting his copy of "Ugly" autographed and meeting Robert Hoge face to face. We were able to speak to him one-on-one, and even though Logan is extremely shy, it was priceless for me, to hear them have a conversation. Logan soaked in the encouraging words this wonderful author had to share.
There's nothing more redeeming than continuing to learn that you are not alone in this world.
