Time for Celebration


We recently caught up with our lovely young friend Liana.  She and her Mum Fernette gave us this photo from a recent celebration.

Liana made these fabulous eye cupcakes to share with the class to celebrate five years with an artificial eye.

Liana, like most children we meet, is remarkably resilient and easily adapt to life with an artificial eye.

Right now we are in the process of making Liana a new eye.  It’s fun to catch up on the family news and see how much she has grown and changed.

Children do require more frequent appointments as they are constantly growing.

We loved catching up with Liana and her family and celebrating this great milestone.

The cupcakes look awesome!
