We were back at Shriners today--but this time for Chloe. Her leg length difference has gotten to the point that she needs a lift. We had the option of a full inch lift attached to the outside of her shoe, or a half inch lift for the inside. For today, we went with the inside lift just to see how she likes it.
The really exciting news though, was that they are able to make her something that will allow her to wear two shoes that are the same size! We have always bought her two different sizes but it has been a surprising challenge. Her little foot is only three toes wide, so it's very narrow. But the hardest part was that since her foot is two sizes smaller, we would find ourselves with one foot in a bigger kid style and one in a more babyish style. It is really hard to find shoes that are exactly the same in both sizes. Who knew?!
So now Chloe gets to go shopping for a pair of shoes that are the same size while the ortho guys at Shriners make her a special add-on for her shoe! I told them that she is going to be the flower girl in Ryan's wedding this summer and they told me that if she needs a special one just for her fancy shoes, they can make one for those, too!!
I drove home feeling so very grateful for Shriners. Such an amazing place.
