Rachel's Journey

Last year, I started this blog to keep family, friends, and others updated. Having been born with a cleft lip and palate, the journey over the last 15 months to having both repaired is a journey now behind us. While Rachel will continue to need and have more in the years to come, the current journey has come to an end.

There won't be much to update as far as cleft related stuff, with the exception of her yearly craniofacial team appointments.

I've enjoyed writing and sharing about Rachel, and I don't want to stop because the sole reason I began this blog is now behind us. With that said, I will continue to post pictures and share funny happenings and adventures of Rachel.

I hope you will continue to come and watch Rachel as she grows into a beautiful and happy girl.

Hi! I know you don't know me, but I came across your blog while doing a google blog search for cleft palate blogs.

My son, Ethan, was born just a couple of weeks before your lovely daughter... August 11, 2004. He underwent his palate repair on November 2nd, and as I was reading through, I found myself completely relating to everything you've gone through!

Your daughter is beautiful and such a trooper!

I truly believe that God gives these children a special personality, an ability to deal with the struggles they go through and will go through in the future. They are amazing and strong and fly through things I would certainly whine about all the time with barely a whimper.

Thank you for sharing her story, and I pray that her future is bright. Our God is faithful, and He has amazing things planned for our children!

Oh Darcy, please don't stop posting! I had the same dilemma when Emily completed her palate surgery, which is why I like to post pictures and stories of other kids too. It's so helpful to just see how well Rachel is doing and how gorgeous she is and how strong you are...I could go on and on. I hope you update her blog at least a couple of times a month or how will I get my Rachel fix???

By the way, happy holidays!
