Margaret is eleven months old and has a complete right cleft lip as well as a cleft palate. There is one photo that shows both defects and how extensive this problem is for her. She’s just crying because we’re holding her head still for a quick photo. You can see that she recovered quickly and was happier in the next photo. We did stage one this year, repairing her cleft lip. That will help the teeth grow in more normally. Next year, she’ll return for her cleft palate repair. It is nice to reach these children when they are small babies for the lip repair and young toddlers, 1-2 years old, for the palate repair.
