Meet Lanie

Lanie was born in January 2022 with a bilateral cleft lip and palate. She is our 4th baby, and our 2nd with a cleft. Lanie was born with almost no palate, but that didn’t slow her down! She had been to near 40 different appointments with various specialists by the time she turned 6 months old. At 6 months (and 1 week old) Lanie had surgery to repair her cleft lip and nose. She has since recovered, and we are planning another surgery early in 2023 to repair her palate. We are so thankful for the Mia Moo Fund helping our family, and feel beyond blessed to be a part of this community!  ~ Lanie's mom
