As part of her daughter Olivia's birthday month, Nikki Valdez couldn't help but share photos of her only child growing up and how she helped her daughter understand her condition. Nikki's daughter nicknamed Oy was born with Symbrachydactyly, a congenital malformation where fingers end up not fully developing. Last year Nikki also shared her advocacy for Limb Difference Awareness Month.  

She wrote:
"I certainly will never forget this year (2012) because it was around this time that you have started to realize that you were different from all the children you meet specially your classmates. You even asked, “Mama, when I get to Kinder 2, is my hand going to be bigger too?” I did not know what to answer as I was caught by surprise by your question.  
Then one day, I finally had the courage to explain everything to you... My love, you may have a ‘baby hand’, but I know that as you get older, you will achieve great things because of your big heart. Remember that we love you no matter what.   Babe, 17 more days till you’re 11!!!! #MyOY"

A few days ago, I chanced upon this game and just gave it a try to really see what the outcome would be. Sabi ko trip lang ano kaya ang message ng Dad ko. When this came out, I burst into tears because whether it was coincidental or not, it was so true. How could an online game know what I usually do or the exact things I say to my Dad when I speak with him or when I pray? I still find myself tearing up when I think of you or when I miss you. Thank you for speaking to me thru my dreams and in this case, this game... I know you still keep a watchful eye on us. Happy Father’s Day in heaven, Daddy! I miss and love you every day. 💖
