This is my nephew Wyatt. He was born with a cleft lip, as well as a “partial” palate
I took this picture when he was about four months, since then he has had his lip repaired, and looks “normal”.
My sister said to me once that she was the luckiest mother in the world. When I asked why she replayed “because, most mothers only get to fall in love with their child’s smile once, I was blessed to fall in love with two beautiful smiles. Two perfect faces and best of all my son is healthy, he was a beautiful baby boy, and still is.”
As his aunt, I’ll miss his god given face, but the children of this society would treat him like a criminal. They would laugh at him and ridicule him. They would teach him to hate himself. When in reality there is/was nothing wrong with him.
He is perfect.
