Default I am a happy adult with a birthmark

Hi Everyone My name is Javier Alecksky, I am 36 years old and I have a red pws that covers the 75% of my face.

as most of the stories here, yea it was difficult to deal with it everyday, and still do, but now I can tell everyone that I am a very happy person, and we can live with our birthmarks without any problem.

would love to keep contact with people like me, this is my mail
alecksky@msn.com or jvbuniverse@hotmail.com

have a great day everyday.

hugs Alecksky

Hi alecksky

I am a 28 year old female and I agree with you. I am also a very happy person living with a PWS on the left cheek on my face, how you look does not define you and those who can't handle the way you look are worth knowing. I am getting married next year and we have been together for 9 years.
Life does not stop just because we look different.
