Cleft Lip & Palate Club  Welcome! This place is meant to share cleft/craniofacial journeys. We are here to educate & celebrate each other. Kick your feet up & stay a while.⭐️

"My name is Emily and I'm 22 years old. I was born with a complete bilateral cleft lip and cleft palate and have had 34 surgeries, with a few more to go. My advice is to never let your scars negatively define who you are, but to always be proud of them nevertheless. They share your story for you, and they show more strength than any muscle you may have." @emilykeefner

"My name is Justin, I'm 28 with a cleft lip and palate. I had multiple surgeries, I don't remember how many. I also had some other issues to. My youngest kid is Ryder. He is 2 and he also had a cleft palate and cleft lip, he's had three surgeries so far, more to come unfortunately. But he's doing great." @jr_loewen

Someone saw my cup and asked "What's a cleft?" After I explained they said "Oh like those commercials I see where people do mission trips?" And I said "Yeah that's part of it." And they said "That's cool. How can I support that?" 😊😊 Spreading cleft awareness and raising cleft support! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ I have a few stickers left of everything so DM me if you want some.

What would you say to them? Comment below β¬‡οΈπŸ’¬πŸ’­πŸ‘‡πŸΌ

"Story time. My mom @edleykathryn was pregnant with twins about 23 years ago (me and a little guy she never got to meet.) Several weeks into her pregnancy, she was told that she was experiencing a miscarriage and to expect to lose both sets of heartbeats. When she went back to the doctor weeks later, the doctor noticed the sound of a child's heartbeat. I was pulling through. I was born a healthy baby, with the exception of a cleft lip, most likely caused by the trauma of the miscarriage. Blessed with a great surgeon, I had surgery at 6 weeks old to repair the cleft. I've had my struggles with the scar, but I've ultimately come to appreciate what the scar means to my mom and myself. We're all a little imperfect, but don't let it hold you back in life. Imperfections aren't flaws, they're part of the whole that makes us beautiful." @ellenbethwilliams
