Dulce was born with a cleft lip one year ago today at Clinica Panamerica. Rotaplast was there too, on their first mission in Apartadó. Dr. Anne DeLaney was the Rotaplast mission medical director and met the family in the recovery room. She explained the sequence of events for children with a cleft and invited the family back in one year so Rotaplast could repair Dulce’s cleft lip.
It’s now day 6 of our mission and Dulce’s mom, Sandra brought her back today on her first birthday. Dulce is an active toddler and just too cute for words. We are all looking forward to giving her a life changing operation.
