Haley was fortunate enough to have been born in a country with wonderful medical care. Other children are not so fortunate. That's where Operation Smile comes in handy. Operation Smile is a charity organization of medical experts who literally give children smiles by correcting facial deformities.
Many people don't know that the biggest problem for parents of a baby with a cleft palate is being able to feed the baby. Having seen the process for myself, I can't imagine how children in third world countries survive. Cleft palates can also be a marker for other problems, such as lung and heart problems. Haley is very lucky that she is perfectly healthy.
As you can see from the pictures above, Haley's team of doctors have done a superior job in giving her a meaningful life. I'd like other children to have that same gift. Will you take a moment, go to the following website, and donate to Operation Smile? (I'm sorry I'm not technologically savvy enough to shorten the link.) Haley, I love you!
