Smile Story - Adalyn
Adalyn’s mom was 20 weeks pregnant when doctors told her that her baby had a cleft lip and potential cleft palate during an ultrasound. Her parents knew she would be perfectly made no matter what.
Adalyn was born in March with an incomplete bilateral cleft lip and bilateral cleft palate. She is amazing, never bothered by her cleft, and so happy!
She was just under five months old when Dr. Thopaldy closed her cleft lip at Riley Hospital for Children in August. Adalyn’s smile only temporarily went away as she recovered from surgery, but now it’s come back!
Although her mom wishes Adalyn could keep the smile God gave her, because wide smiles light up a room, she knows her new smile will gain that wattage!
