Look At Them Now!
Thirty children had cleft lip or palate surgery eight months ago during our 2014 Cleft Exchange, and periodically we receive updated photos and reports on their progress. We hope you’ll enjoy seeing some of their smiling faces!
Robert Owen, now 19 months old, had his palate surgery in October. He is still quite a drooler, and is happy and social.
Kenny, recently celebrated his second birthday. He is doing well and will hopefully have his palate surgery soon.
Karis recently moved into our foster care program. Although she suffered a terrible cold soon after her move, she’s recovered and is thriving.
Last but not least for today is Robin!
Robin has been busy with her new job as a social worker. She has a lot of reading to do for her training. She has also taken up photography and is working on learning more English. Robin recently started receiving speech therapy. She enjoys spending time with her friends and even participated in a track meet with her co-workers.
