Morgan

Morgan was born on April 24, 1996, with a unilateral cleft lip and palate. Morgan's pictures are presented to you by her mother, Teri.

This was taken 4 days after lip repair. Morgan is 8 weeks old. Notice the palate.

This was taken 2 weeks after lip repair.

This is our swollen baby at 5 months, in the hospital after bone graft.

Notice the string through the tongue taped to the cheek- a safety measure in case of emergency.

She also had tubes put in her ears.
