Today was almost like Christmas for Anna. It was a day she had been anticipating for quite some time. Her braces came off!
Here is Anna before:
And here she is after:
Both of my kids were teased about their teeth. I am thankful that we are able to afford braces for them.
Anna doesn't like to see pictures of herself "before". All she can see is her teeth. I think there are some painful memories tied up in that for her. It's too bad, because I have so many adorable pictures of her. I hope some day she will be able to look at the pictures of her young years and remember the happy times. I am sure pictures going forward will be much happier for her.
