This is the first of many cleft palate posts that will involve my beautiful middle child. I post these pictures as a reminder that even with ‘deformities’, there is perfection. We are all created by the Creator, and even our fingerprints and eyelashes tell of the intricate detail that was not spared in our design. Warren was about one when these pictures were taken. This was prior to his third repair surgery. He is now three. Yet, no matter his age; his face, his giggles, and his tenacious spirit have always been there. He is the strongest willed child I’ve ever met in my life, and with that came a bravery and belief in justice and integrity that continue to be awe inspiring. Logan and I will be better parents because of him.
