“It's amazing what your cleft journey will do to your life when you embrace it.”
In honor of Cleft Awareness Month 2021, Smile Train's Cleft Community Advisory Council presents real-life stories of growing up with a cleft or being the mom to a child with a cleft from people who have been there.
Thanks to you, thousands of children will think of 2020 as the best year ever.

How one conversation — and one good idea — can make a huge difference.
