Mia's April Reflection

Happy Easter! 

April Reflection 

Hey Y'all! Mia here! I hope all of you had a happy Easter with your families! I know I did! We as a family celebrated Easter together and my brother Reed cooked the best burgers ever! Also this month I committed to Lipscomb University! I am super excited for this next phase of life and seeing what God has in store for it. 
Blessings,
Mia

MEET ADALYNN - APRIL RECIPIENT!

Adalynn is from North Carolina. “There is so much I could say about our sweet girl, Adalynn. She is the happiest most loving baby. I am so blessed to be her mama. My world is a much better place having her in it. She has a light in her that I pray is never dulled. She is truly a treasure and a gift from God. I thank him everyday for trusting me to be her mama.“

Please pray for this family as they prepare for another surgery.

MEET ELIJAH - APRIL RECIPIENT!

Our sweet Elijah was born October 2021 in Baton Rouge and hasn't missed a beat since day one. He is a curious, happy and active boy. Elijah was born with a bilateral cleft lip and palate and received his forever smile February 2, 2022. He recovered so well and we are forever grateful to his doctors as well as the MiaMoo Fund for taking care of our sweet boy. This journey may not have been one we imagined for our baby, but we are so proud of him and can't imagine life any other way. ~ Elijah's Mom

Spotted! Mia and her two best friends taking graduation pictures! Holding on to senior year forever!
WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
Allie turned 11 in December and will be finishing up 5th grade next month. Last Spring she started her first set of braces with the help of the Mia Moo Fund. Since she was born, she has had lip repair surgery, palate repair, palate reconstruction, bone graft, plus multiple sets of tubes for ear infections. 
Allie loves school! She enjoys reading, playing basketball, arts and crafts, spending time with friends, and helping lead Glow Kids worship at church. She has such a big heart and is always looking for ways to help others. As a parent, when she was little, I worried about how having a cleft lip would affect her as she got older. I know we have not made it to the teen years yet, but so far she has not let it hold her back any. Not to say it never crosses her mind, but she is an outgoing, Jesus-loving, little girl with big dreams. 
We are so very thankful God led us to the Mia Moo family. When starting out on this journey, it can be easy to feel alone. Not only did they help us financially, but they have made us feel so welcomed and like we are family. They truly care about our kids. ~ Allie's mom
