What a great education on the NAM. This baby looks like Emily will have a fabulous repair. Thanks for the pictures. They are very reassuring to future parents and grandparents!

You are a terrific mom..for educating yourself and now others. I was born with a cleft palate and my mother was also fantastic and supportive..this is the reason why I'm one year away from completing medical school and will probably go into plastics and recontructive surgery. Emily is a very lucky girl to have a wonderful mom like you..and believe me it makes a difference!
