Here is what the Latham Appliance did.

Here is 3-Pete at 4 months old; before his lip repair and after the Latham appliance.

Here is 3-Pete after his lip repair was done.

By the age of 8 months, finally, his lip and palate had been repaired. Thank you, Children's Medical Services and our plastic surgeon!

This is my boy at his first birthday party. ONE YEAR! WOW! So much has happened in that year. But I thank God for everyone that God put before me. From other parents to CMS to his doctors that were involved etc.
