This book will remind omphalocele kids' they're very special! All methods to repair are unique and serious. 'A Very Special Me' was written to remind omphalocele children that they were born a little different, but they're loved just the same. Please use this story as a tool to create dialogue when children start asking questions about their tummies. By the end of the story your child will realize that they really are very special. It is written in a wonderful rhyme, and the watercolors are so full of life they will catch your child's attention through the entire story. Prior to our daughter's last omphalocele surgery, she asked a lot of questions. A nurse suggested a kids book that could help her understand what was going to happen. Because I couldn't find the right book for this situation or age, I decided to write one myself. Through a support group, I met Emily, an artist who is also an omphalocele adult. Emily was able to take the words provided and easily put emotions and life experiences into her pictures, bringing them beautifully to life.
