This page is shared with you by Jacoline, Nicolas' mother.

Nicolas was born with a bilateral cleft lip and palate.

His soft palate was repaired when he was three and a half months old.

6 days after his second operation (1 side lip repair & 1 side hard palate).

6 months and 5 days old - BRAVE LITTLE BOY!

6 days after his third operation (2nd side lip and hard palate). This operation was done when Nicolas was 8 months old.

Just three and a half weeks after his third operation, Nicolas is...

READY TO ROLL!         

One week before his first birthday. You can still see the scars...
...but what a gorgeous smile he has!
