My Cleft Gallery

Growing up, I remember trawling through the internet, desperately trying to find images of children, teenagers and adults born with clefts. Nowadays it's easier with tools like social media (I'd especially recommend using Instagram), but for anyone who wants to see a cleft journey, here are some closeups from mine.
