Trust Him!!

So many times Adam and I have second guessed our choice with Boston. It's never been a question of their ability or experience, but more a question of convenience. Many times we've been asked by friends, strangers, nurses, and even doctors why we are going "all the way to Boston". But each time it happens and we begin to doubt the Lord simply brings someone or something into our lives to give us a little, "yep, you're doing the right thing". From the very beginning the Lord has guided us through every step and it's so great to know He's going to make sure we are taken care of. We found Boston Children's through a woman I've never even met, spoke to 2 surgeons within 12 hours of calling the hospital, had our 3d pics reviewed by their ultrasonographer at no cost, and have had continuous contact with nurses and doctors since April. Theses are only a few of the countless reasons we know we're in the right place.

If you are in the process of finding a hospital make sure you:
- take your time
- feel comfortable with the doctors
- get a sense of honesty & genuine concern from the whole staff - I remember every time I called the office they acted like I was important & truly made us feel "taken care of".
- find previous patients and compare the surgical results - You will be amazed at the difference between various surgeons
- discuss & compare when the surgeries are done - some doctors perform the first surgery within a month while others wait about 5 months.
-if possible, try setting up a consultation with the craniofacial team. Most of them want you to do this anyway so they can get a pre-operative look at your child.
