September is Craniofacial Acceptance month
My craniofacial difference is Velocardiofacial facial syndrome however you would never know because it is a mild slight difference than the average joe. I have a genetic disorder called 22q11.2 deletion syndrome and my very mild facial features make me look younger than my age. I am 34 years old if you look at my picture I have smaller facial features even the amount of teeth I have is more than the size of my mouth.
My daughter has the same velocardiofacial syndrome as she too has 22q11.2 deletion syndrome.
This is us and that is why I am posting about this because we appear like the typical normies but when you see us you think oh you are so blessed to look younger.
The challenge for me is being taken seriously by strangers and anyone else I meet. I also get carded everywhere I go even for rated R movies when I go out with my husband. Going out with my husband often gets questions like isn't he old enough to be your father or if he is my father and he is only 10 years older than I am.
