I have just read the New Parents Guide booklet and it is absolutely amazing! Now you're going to think I'm exaggerating but I nearly cried while I read it as it reminded me of the fact that I had no help/advice when my son was born just over 4 years ago and there were definitely no booklets like that! It has everything about Microtia in it and answers many questions that parents may have. It is a great tool to use to show health visitors, doctors, GP's etc. when trying to explain what Microtia is every time! The 'telling others' page really got to me as I found it hard to tell others when my son was born, even hiding it from fb for 2 months and extended family and I struggled to bond with him for 6 months. When he was new born I used to put his blanket up to his neck and cover his little ear with it so no one would notice as I shopped around Tesco! as I thought I would get bad looks or negative thoughts about me as a parent! The booklet is truly amazing guys and so are the elephants, wristbands etc. Thank you so much, I'm so happy and just glad that there are people out there that are doing something about helping people with Microtia.
