I got a phone call today that gave me so much hope and faith that I cried and then laughed. The call came from Emergence Surgical Gifts, Dr. Connor's called me himself. I was in shocked to get his call today it was about 4pm. This is what he said.
I didn't know what to say to him, I told him that we have been trying to get Help since Haleigh was 6 months old and I told him thank you. I also asked if there was anything else He needed from me.
To my surprise he said yes.
When I mailed him our application, I wrote him a letter, saying how much we wanted Haleigh to have a normal life and how this surgery was the only way for that to happen.
He said he has never had a letter written like that to him and it was very moving to hear how a mom felt. He wants to use Haleigh's pictures and the letter to help him get grants and fundraise for the foundation.
I am excited about this too, Haleigh is going to help other children by helping this foundation get funding and getting their name out there. I am e-mailing him pictures and sending a release and pictures through the mail next week.
He did tell me it was going to take time to get her team together and I would have to trust him, and have faith in him. To let him do surgery on my daughters face I am going to have to have that in him so I need to start that now. How much time? I do not know he said a couple of months, he said he can not wait to meet me and Haleigh and how honored he is to be the one to help her.
We got into a program!!!! We got into a program!!!
Haleigh is going to have what every other child has..... A childhood!!
