Our hope is that this will be his only surgery, but we won’t know until later. He will be followed for years after the surgery and we will tackle this one step at a time! If you are up for it, we’d love it if you’d consider praying for Brady’s surgery in June (it’s never too early)! I pray for God to heal his cleft palate every single day and that God would use it for His glory somehow.
Sitting in the waiting room at the clinic was bittersweet. While Brady’s cleft palate is not evident to strangers, many of the children we saw have very visible birth differences. While part of me couldn’t help but feel compassion towards those children and what they have been through or will go through, there was another part of me that just couldn’t help but smile. They were all precious…just the way they were. Children are a gift from God, no matter what they look like on the outside.
