Introducing Brenden Cole! Brenden was born on March 19, 1996, with a unilateral cleft lip and palate and a missing premaxilla. Brenden's pictures are presented to you by his parents Kyla and Christian.

Brenden is one week old here.
We had already fallen in love with his wide smile.

The day after lip repair (March 28, 1996). Brenden is wide awake, but mom could use a few hours of sleep!

One week after surgery. The surgical tape they put on after my stitches came out makes me look like a kitten. Meow!

Three weeks after lip repair, with a smile that could charm anyone.
