Take a moment to look for the beauty within.
Look beyond the imperfections
of flesh and bone to see who hides behind. Join me in celebration of true beauty of heart and soul. Learn to accept beauty in the uniqueness of each of us. Smile and accept instead of shunning and teasing. We are all different none is perfect. Each of us is flawed although some more severely than others. However, if you look beyond a glimpse you might see the true beauty that was almost missed.

What started out as a project for a book has transformed into a project for awareness, understanding an bringing people together. Many extended family bonds have been made in the quest to learn as much as possible for what it means to be diagnosed as "Craniofacial". We are Beauty in Imperfection, & we are CranioArt Melanie Roder. I started out as only one person from Omaha Nebraska, yet the friends that I have made will last a lifetime and be forever in my heart even long after our cranio kids have grown and had kids of their own. I want everyone that is involved in our lives and any future friends to know that "Beauty In Imperfection" is for you and for your Untold Stories.
"Beauty In Imperfection: Do You See Beyond the Shape of Me? " is constantly a work in progress. We are buildin the a book and have several awareness videos uploaded on our YouTube Channel. We hope to complete a book of drawings, stories, information, and letters to promote the awareness and understanding of various cranial and facial conditions that affect children and adults all around the world. I have not secured a publisher and will most likely self-publish this book and make it available for purchase from this very website when it is completed.
Please pass this website around for information of various craniofacial conditions such as

Are you, family member, or friend affected by a facial abnormality? I am in need of images of babies, children, adults who are affected by facial abnormalities. I have already had a great start from the overwhelming support of my many friends in the craniofacial community. I am extremely thankful as my book could not be a success without the help of so many of you.
