When I was younger I was so ashamed of my cleft lip and was made fun of almost daily, and as a result I’ve spent my whole life trying to hide it away from everyone but mostly I tried to hide it away from myself. It was not until I was contacted by my cosmetic surgeon for my final surgery that I finally looked in the mirror and accepted that this is me, this is how I look and it is beautiful. This scar is what makes me who I am and makes me stand out.
So because this week is cleft lip & palate awareness and prevention week I thought I’d share some amazingly beautiful clefties I have come across here on tumblr. And I Tho I that the more that we share these adorable faces & smiles the more that we can help younger clefties become more positive about their own smiles. We are all uniquely beautiful in our own ways. Love yourself!
