Team Work Tuesday- Owen 3G

Saethre-Chotzen Syndrome

What does that mean?
 What should I expect from a child diagnosed with this?
What a scary sounding disorder!!

This is an inherited condition.
There are several physical traits associated with this disorder:

1) Fusion of cranial structure causing a asymmetric head and face
2) low-set hair line
3) droopy eyelids and/or wide set eyes
4) beaked nose and possible deviated septum
5) abnormalities of fingers and/or toes
6) Intelligience is not usually impaired

But what does all this really mean?

It means a beautiful, sweet little boy has been left without a family for no reason...for fear...for the inability to look beyond the exterior and see the person, the child.

Born December 2007

Here is the link to post about Owen with pictures of him throughout his life. He is so cute!!
