Molly Roberts, Christian's mother, says that she has hoped for the day that she would see her son smile since the day he was born. She adds, "It was my dream for Christian and when he was old enough to understand it became his dream too." In the summer of last year, Molly and her son's dream led them to the Seattle Children’s Hospital Craniofacial Center, where they met with Christian's future surgeon, Dr. Craig Birgfeld. When he heard the frustrations of the little boy who was finding it increasing difficult to relay his feelings of joy and happiness to those around him, Dr. Birgfeld proposed a surgery to give the boy the ability to smile.
