Dr. Mitzi Williams is a doctor of podiatric medicine. She specializes in pediatric/adult reconstructive foot and ankle surgery. Dr. Williams has written this book to help children better understand a medical diagnosis. These books would be used for parents to help children talk about a diagnosis in a less scary fashion. These books would also help the siblings of the child. Dr. Williams' compassion and understanding are far-reaching as she has traveled as far as Vietnam and Nepal to perform surgery for children and adults.
My Boots along with its sequel entitled My Big Boots are both dedicated to the children worldwide born with clubfoot. These books have been published to provide information from a child's point of view while also providing accurate information for families who are caring for children with clubfoot.
