Cleft Lip and Palate

I was 18 weeks when the doctors told me that my son would be born with BI Lateral Cleft Lip and Palate. Where to begin, there were surgeriers at 3 months, 15 months and then again at 7 years old. There will be many more to come, not to mention all the dental appointment. Fast Forward 6 years...



February 16, 2007 I am pregnant with our 3rd Child, how exciting that I have a 6 year old and a 9 month old, today we go for our Ultrasound appointmnet I hope the doctors are wrong, I hope the baby does not have a heart defect and I hope that he does not have a cleft. But remember we prayed for the baby that would be perfect for Evan and another boy with a cleft would be perfect for him. Well, they confirmed it the baby is a boy and he definately has a bi lateral cleft lip and palate exactly the same as Evan, what are the chances of that. His heart looks like he has hypoplastic left heart. We will go for an echo in a few weeks.
