Family raises awareness for cleft lip and palate birth defect

A family is now raising awareness for cleft lip and palate after two of their sons were born with the defect. The parents said that they had no information on the defect before their children were born and they were shocked. They now want to help parents that are in similar situations.

Their first son was born with a cleft lip and when the woman became pregnant again, they asked the doctor to check for any issues while the child was in the womb, and the doctor found that the second son was also facing this same issue.

The cleft issue is caused when the palate and mouth do not fuse together properly during development. The older child had what is called a micro cleft and the younger son was born with a much one severe one. The eldest son has already had two surgeries and it is expected that he will have multiple more until the age 6 0r 7.
