Zidane was diagnosed with a unilateral complete cleft lip and palate during our 16 week gender scan when we found out we were having a boy. It was a lot to take in, learning he would have to endure numerous operations until roughly the age of 18. However, once the initial shock settled we were just excited to meet our beautiful boy and welcomed the challenges that would come with him (cleft or no cleft!!).
Even if you love your job, there are some mornings you just want to turn off the alarm and stay in bed. I wanted to quickly share with you my motivation for leaving the house every morning to come to work at CLAPA.
