About the author:
Carmen Mickley is a stay at home mom and lives in Waco, Texas. She and her husband were recently blessed with their first born son, Salem, who was also born with Apert Syndrome. Carmen takes care of Salem while her husband works very hard to provide for all of them. Her overall goal is to become a great advocate not only for her son but for other children with special needs as well. The inspiration to make a difference in children's lives and to write this poem " A Closer Look" comes from the joy that is received from her very persistent courageous son, who has broken all barriers and doubts placed before him. "I hope one day people will accept all children with differences, for their loving brave characteristics and give them a chance to be loved; you just don't know what you're missing until you do."

A Closer Look

Authored by Carmen Anita Mickley

"Will you take a closer look?" Everyone wants and deserves to be loved for who they are, not judged for how they look. This heartfelt poem, written by a mother, encourages others to look beyond the visible differences and find the person inside. Illustrated with candid photos of children and adults with facial differences, "A Closer Look," shows the person beyond the diagnosis.
"A Closer Look" can change a mind, a changed mind can change a heart, a changed heart can change a life.
