I was born with a cleft palate. A few days later, I was diagnosed with Pierre Robin Sequence. This was causing my tongue to fall back and block my airway. I have a small chin and was not able to take a bottle. After jaw surgery, I can now eat and breath all on my own! I will still face another surgery but I am doing well and growing stronger, and stronger every day. I was recently discharged from the NICU, and my two big brothers were so very excited to meet me for the first time. Mom and Dad are so happy to have our family together, all under one roof for Christmas.
