Today marks the day that changed my little boy's face forever. It has been two years since Reid's lip repair, and I am amazed how fast time goes. When you are going though this journey, there are many times that I thought that time could not go fast enough. And here I sit, two years later thankful for so much. I am proud of Reid and how well he has done through his many appointments, procedures, taping, stent work, therapy sessions, and surgeries. He was perfect in my eyes the minute I saw him....and I will always miss seeing that first face that I loved so deeply. Reid, you've been through a lot... and I could not be more proud of you. You've come a mighty long way, baby.
I heard from a mom of another cleft baby that God grants beautiful eyes to all cleft children....so everyone will look there first...instead of focusing on imperfections. I love this picture of Reid's eyes...and I will forever love that wide smile.
Brian and I were so taken aback at your new look that we had to sit down for a moment to catch our breath. The transformation was amazing.
