Justin Richard
Hello! I'd like you to meet Justin Richard, born February 12, 1998 with Pierre Robin Syndrome, which includes a small lower jaw and a cleft of the hard and soft palate. His first year of life was filled with many feeding and breathing obstacles. He is doing wonderfully now, though still getting extra help from a g-tube. We feel we have been blessed to be given this special boy and are so proud to share him with you.

Justin and his family: Mom (Stacy), Dad (Matt), and sisters Rebecka (age 8) and Emily (age 5).

Justin at 10 months, with his sisters who spoil him rotten!

Justin's first Christmas.
