A note from Mommy:

With Peyton now in preschool, so begins the tradition of school-made Mother's Day gifts.  Although we have beautiful castings of Peyton's hands prior to each of her surgeries that Travis spent hours getting just right - this simple hand print is enough to get me all weepy.  It will take it's place in the memory box I am keeping, nestled amongst her many hospital ID bracelets, the first trach we ever changed, her jaw distractors and the more traditional baby book.  And looking at it I will forever be reminded that despite how her hand print may not be "normal" what it will represent is how very "normal" she is - putting her hand to clay as countless children have done before her and countless more no doubt will do in the future.
