Robert looks different from other kids because he was born with major physical deformities such as his face has many bumps and lumps. His legs are not real as when he was born one his legs wasn't there and his other leg didn't function properly so they cut it off. Now that he has had surgery on his face it looks better and now he has artificial legs to replace the other legs and can still do many things that we can do. But other than those two things he is like everyone else.

He thinks himself a normal kid in most ways as his brain doesn't function any differently from ours. He might think some things he does are hard though and he would be right about that. He would most likely think he is a lucky child as most children with deformities are hidden away.

Robert acts mostly like any other child but because of his deformities sometimes he may act differently. Robert is very resilient and confident. He is also brave because some things that we can do easily may be difficult or even scary for him. He acts resilient because he always overcomes his life challenges and never gives up. He is confident because he always knows he can do whatever he is doing and if he can't he will always give it a try.

Robert would feel lucky because he is allowed to go to school but many kids that were born or became deformed wouldn't be able to go to school and would be hidden away so no one could see them.
