Jaelynn was born with a Bilateral Cleft Palate. We didn’t know until she was born, so it was a huge shock and rather scary as we had very little knowledge about Clefts. Our Cleft team is phenomenal with educating us, supporting us and being with us every step of the way. They have gone above and beyond to help with Speech, knowledge on all procedure and surgeries being done, and always make us feel comfortable and in the know. Without our team I don’t know where we would be, or if Jaelynn would be as successful or if we would be as confident in Jaelynn’s progress.
Our youngest daughter Kinsley was monitored for Speech concerns and a possible sub mucosal Cleft. At clinic it was found that she is not Cleft affected and they are pleased with her progress in Speech. It is crucial to have our team as a reference to help our family navigate the Cleft life.
