Carlee is turning 5 !!! Happy Birthday, Carlee!
Hey Everyone. This is an updated picture of Carlee who is now 4 1/2
years old. She is standing with Cher. We got to go to her concert and
meet her backstage on February 14, 2003 "Valentine's Day". Carlee is
doing great in the mainstream pre-k system and will start mainstream
kindergarten this coming school year. I am proud to say Carlee has
been surgery free since October of 2000. So parents of younger
children that are having lots of surgeries and doctor's appointments..
It does get easier.!!!
Love Cristy and Carlee Williams
Hello! We are the Williams family,
Clyde (aka "Slick"), Cristy, Cody, Carlee, and
Hunter. We live in Orange Park, Florida, which is close to
Jacksonville, home of the "Jacksonville Jaguars," which I
am sorry to say aren't doing very well this year.
Carlee was born on June 4, 1998. She weighed 6 lbs 4 oz and
was 5 weeks premature. We had no idea that Carlee was special
until the day she was born. We have loved her and spoiled her
rotten. She is now a very happy healthy 2 year old.
Carlee has a 10 year old half brother, Cody. She loves him
very much. She also has a 9 month old baby brother,
Hunter. She loves him too, but has become quite a little bully
We are glad we have met a lot of people through the Apert
listserv. We have been fortunate to go to Myrtle Beach, SC
2 years in a row and also to Orlando, FL to meet Apert families.
These first 2 years of Carlee's life have been filled with lots
of surgeries. She has had 5 major hand surgeries and 2 minor
ones to remove ingrown fingernails. She also had a cranial
surgery at 10 months of age. They did a forehead advancement
at that time and released fused sutures so her brain could grow.
We are very happy that we were chosen to have Carlee. She
is truly a blessing.
