A New Friend

When we first found out about Bauer's cleft we thought, "Wow, we feel like we're the only ones." It's amazing how many people in our community have dealt with this. One day in church a sweet lady, Helen Coleman, a retired missionary, shared her story of being born with a cleft. She dealt with surgeries and doctors years ago. As I looked at her I wouldn't have even guessed she had a cleft lip. You could barely see any scarring. She didn't have her's repaired until she was 6 years old!! We're very thankful for how far the medical field has come and how open others have been about their personal experience. Thanks Ellen!
