My name is Rebecca. I was born with a bilateral cleft-lip and palate. Through all of my ups and downs I feel that I am a strong, confident individual. I feel God’s purpose for making me this way is to be a positive inspiration for those born with clefts or those who have children who have clefts.6 Comments
You are such a beautiful young lady – inside and out. And like your cousin – I love your face. It’s makes you YOU!
I am raising a granddaughter born with a UCLP who is 5 years old now. We got her when she was 4 months old. She has had 7 surgeries so far and we know she will need a bone graft, an expander, full braces top & bottom and who knows what else.
Thank you for sharing your story on your blog. It gives me such hope for my little one that she will grow up to be as confident as you are!
My dearest niece you never cease to amaze me. You are a beautiful, loving, and talented young lady. I know that you will continue to accomplish many wonderful things in your life. You are definitely an inspiration to others and one of my heroes!
Jennifer – Thank you so much for the kind words. If you ever have any questions or you granddaughter needs someone to talk to as she gets old, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for sharing about your granddaughter. I wish you both the best of luck.
Aunt Angela – Thank you so much. You have always been one of my biggest supporters. I love you so much! 🙂
Becca, you are beautiful inside and out. What makes you all the more pretty is your inner beauty and your strength in overcoming your adversity. As you know, I don’t even notice you have a “disability” because I know what a wonderful soul you are and see right past it! You are an inspiration to those with cleft palete, but to anyone with a disability because of your wonderful example! I don’t view you as a young woman with cleft but rather, a caring, capable and strong being!
