Sonny

Cleft Lip

Sonny was born with a cleft lip palate which left him susceptible to ear infections and speech difficulties.  This was discovered during ultrasound during his mother’s pregnancy, so when Sonny was born, a team of specialists were prepared.

By the time Sonny was 10 years old, he had undergone many surgical procedures including reconstructive surgery by a Specialist Plastic Surgeon, which resulted in a more normal appearance of his lip.

Sonny now refers to his lip scar as his bravery sign and doesn’t feel negatively different at school anymore.
