Maria Anne was a 3 month old girl with cleft lip and palate. Apparently both the birth parents have cleft deformities in their families. This year, we will fix her cleft lip and if she’s healthy and weighs at least 20lbs next year, we will fix her cleft palate.
Maria Anne came back in February 2019 to have her cleft palate fixed. Along with the palate surgery, the doctors will fix some of the scarring from the cleft lip surgery.
