Meet Adalynn

Living in the cleft world, is sometimes lonely when it comes to actually knowing people who've walked the journey you're walking or have walked it. So when you come across a family in the internet world of the cleft affected, it's special, it's as though you have a bond immediately. Last week, a comment was left here on Rachel's Journey from a family who had found me.
Adalynn was born with the exact type of cleft as Rachel, unilateral cleft lip and palate, the only difference in our story and theirs is that Adalynn's Mommy and Daddy discovered on an ultrasound that their baby girl would be cleft affected, they had time to prepare. Time to research.

Check out Adalynn's blog. But a word of caution, if you view the slideshow, have a box of Kleenex very near, especially you Gramma's and special Aunts...their journey looks a lot like what we've been through with Rachel and will bring tears, believe me, I know!

thank you for introducing Adalynn to everyone that checks in on Rachel. I believe exactly what you said is soooo definitely is an immediate bond-knowing someone knows exactly what you are going through. Do you mind if I do the same thing with Rachel on my blog?

Oh wow....what an awesome video! Please thank Shannon & John for sharing it w/ the world. I am blessed! Having had a kiddo with a birth defect (Savannah was a strabismus baby), it's always fun to watch someone else walk through the series of surgeries w/ other issues & cheer for their baby along the way like so many did for us!! Love ya girl! I love your family!
