Update on our baby with cleft lip

In June 2009 we shared our story about having a baby with a cleft lip. The Doctors had to prepare us for the fact that she might have been born brain damaged or had Down's Syndrome, but we had waited so long we were prepared to love her whatever the outcome. Since then we have worked with some amazing friends to put together a slide show with scan photos and photos of her after she was born. They say a picture tells a thousand words so here is the link if anyone is interested. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fct-no53GDI I hope it brings hope to other people who might be facing a similar situation. Kindest regards
