I was born with this condition on one arm, one hand, both legs and a smattering on my body and face.
After lots of pronoucements from doctors that "I am lucky" I have lived a very full life - just a few medical problems. People accept "deformities" if you look them straight in the face and talk to them with confidence: people forget that you are not the same as they are and accept you as an individual.
To the mother with the young baby: don't worry, allow your daughter to develop as any another other child - don't stop her from swimming, playing tennis, etc because she will have to expose her body, just give her your support.
Remember, the only people in life who are "normal" appear in glossy magazines and the cinema!
