Last year on this mission trip I met Susan, who never seemed to smile. She was thirteen at the time, the same age as my daughter Madeleine was then. She had endured a large cleft lip for thirteen years and it brought tears to my eyes to think of my own daughter having to endure this. Dr. Clawson and I were so pleased to be able to help her. The surgery was even more memorable, as Susan was our patient when the president (now former president) of Zambia joined us in the operating room. She came back this year on the same long bus ride so that we could see her for a follow up appointment. This time, she also got to meet my daughter who joined us for the mission trip. It was a special moment for all of us! Now she smiles nonstop.
