Hannah was born with a wide bilateral horeshoe cleft of the palate and bilateral club feet. She endured casting for her feet every week for the first year, heel cord surgery at 6 mos., and feeding issues. Palate repair was in 06/2002; tonsils and adenoids removed 4/26/04; p-flap 7/1/04. She is now in speech therapy and doing very well! She is a precious gift and we know God's hand is on her!
Harrison was born with a unilateral cleft lip and hard palate and a bilateral cleft of the soft palate. He loves playing with his mom, Jessica, and big sister, Hannah. Harrison had his lip repair at 6 months old and his palate (hard and soft) repair at one year. He will have a nose revision (although it looks great now) and bone graft later on, but for now he is surgery free!
Hailey, DOB 05/31/01, BCLP
Hailey is now three years old. She is a very active toddler and loves to read. Her favorite place to go is to the library, and she also loves to draw. Her speech has improved greatly and she has been surgery free for almost a year. Hailey's last surgery was on 01/14/03 to repair her soft palate. Her next surgery is planned for 2005; they will revise her lip and do her nose because it is starting to slope down.

Hannah's is our only girl; she has 3 big brothers who love her dearly and are very, very protective! Her cleft came as a complete surprise to us, even though we had over 10 ultrasounds and even a 3-D one. She has had 20 surgeries to date with 3 more in the next few months. She was diagnosed with Van Der Woude and PPS last year. Despite all of her medical issues she is the absolute joy in our lives!

Hunter, DOB 08/30/04, Cleft Soft Palate
This is Hunter. He is a very spoiled little boy! He has one brother and two sisters and he loves everyone's attention. We did not know about his cleft until he was born so it was a surprise. At first we were a little nervous but now we are fine. He will have his surgery around his 1st birthday. I would like to hear from others....
