On March 8, 1993, Daniel joined our family. Daniel was born with a unilateral cleft lip and palate. He has two older brothers, Tommy and William, and one baby sister, Mary Jewell. Daniel's pictures are presented by his parents, Tom and Mary Lynn.

These pictures were taken right after Daniel was born...

...in less than 36 hours he would have his first surgery to close the lip.


Here Daniel is six months old and you can tell he is a happy baby. He loves to smile and to make others smile.

Daniel is showing off his new baby sister. From the time
baby JuJu hit the door she was Daniel's.
