Happy #MothersDay to all the amazing mothers around the world. A mother's love is unlike anything else❤️

@CleftProud is a community for anyone affected by Cleft Lip and Palate to connect, share stories, and support each other in a safe place while spreading awareness! In addition, they encourage people to be proud of who they are and what they look like and become #CleftProud! CleftProud was created by a student who was born with a Bilateral Cleft Lip and Palate who felt alone after their most major surgery and decided they did not want anyone else to feel the way they did. They want everyone to remember that their differences have made them stronger and that having the challenge of a Cleft has made them who they are today. And most importantly, they want to help everyone have pride in what makes them unique. You can learn more about them on their website at www.CleftProud.com. “We are a Team. We are United. We are Unique. We are Proud. We are CleftProud” - @cleftproud

3 years ago Jemeleen's dream of becoming a mother came true, but the happy occasion turned to heartache when she learned that her daughter Elsie was also born with a cleft. Luckily Jemeleen was referred to a local Smile Train partner hospital and Elsie was able to receive free cleft repair surgery. Jemeleen reports that now, Elsie is a playful child with lots of friends. Elsie’s large personality even makes the usually-shy Jemeleen smile wide. Happy almost #MothersDay to all the mothers around the world❤️

Most children who are born with a cleft lip and/or palate develop normal speech once their palate is closed, but a significant amount will need further surgery or speech therapy.
