Hello, I am the mother of a beautiful birthmark stud. My son Christian was born with a port wine stain birthmark on the left side of his face (v1-v3). His laser surgeries started at 8 weeks old. He is now 2 years old and has had 26 laser surgeries to date.  This journey has been a whirlwind of emotions. From rude questions to being accused of abusing Christian because of his super hero power dots the day after treatment. My goal is to spread awareness and help others gracefully handle the rude ignorant people out there in regards to PWS birthmarks.
