Facing the world

My hat is off to the French woman with the face transplant who had the courage to face the media. What an ordeal she's been through.

Is it immoral to get a new face? Not in my opinion. I can imagine how distressing it must be for her and her family because in her own words, she looks nothing like she did prior to the terrible mauling from her pet Labrador. Still, she is the same woman. Perhaps her personality will "imprint" her new face.

This new procedure is a true miracle for all who've suffered horrible disfigurement. Even the best surgical procedures hasn't been enough to allow some to go out into the world without provoking stares and whispers.

God bless the doctors and those who pioneer this new medical approach that seems straight out of science fiction. And God bless the woman who must learn to live with a new face.
