September 2023 Reflection

September Reflection
Hey everyone! It's Mia! This month I turned 20! That is so crazy! I had a very eventful birthday in Nashville with most of my college friends, minus a few because so many of them are studying abroad in Europe! It was an amazing birthday, but I am a little sad not being a teenager anymore!

This month I also spent a lot of my time recovering. I am still very weak, but I am growing stronger everyday! As my swelling gets better, so does my smile! And now that I am back at school with my friends, I am constantly smiling! Please continue to pray for strength and rest as I start more classes in October!

Lastly, next weekend is the annual MiaMooFunday! WOOP WOOP!!!! I am SOOO excited for this weekend. It's going to be so good! I cannot wait to see what the Lord has in store for it! 

The photo above shows a photo of Lydia and I, who I met at Camp in 2020! She just transfered to my school and I just have to give her a hug every time I see her! I love all of you guys! Hope you had an amazing September! Enjoy the amazing weather while it lasts!

To know Kelsey is to know pure joy. She is a ray of sunshine and has brought so much light and love into our family. She has a spirit of curiosity and adventure. She loves animals, reading her books, being outside, watching volleyball, and dancing to the Bluey theme song and anything by Taylor Swift. She lives her best life every day and doesn’t let anything stop her. She has been a rockstar and a tiny fighter since the day she was born, and she has been so resilient since her cleft palate repair. Thank you so much. We appreciate y’all! ~ Kelsey's Mom
Meet Otillia. She came to us three weeks early in April 2021! Since then she’s been non stop, she’s excelled through three cleft related surgeries in two years and ‘wows’ us daily. She loves Spider-Man and her puppy Penelope. She’s a non stop talker and loves to sing ‘wheels on the bus’ and ‘baby shark.’ Her blue eyes and big smile light up the room and every day we are thankful to God that she is ours. Otillia's mom.
We did not know what to expect when we got the news our baby would be born with a cleft lip with possible palate involvement. We knew this would present difficult challenges but that she would be the most perfect blessing none the less. Ada had her lip repair at three months old and recovered well. We just celebrated her first birthday and she is all smiles!  She loves to cuddle, talk, is on the move, and loves her big brother more than anything! We are so grateful for her and for the help the Mia Moo Fund provided us.

We are doing a new recipe each month to help children who are undergoing those tough surgeries! Whether you are on a liquid diet, a soft food diet, or just someone who is always down to try new foods, these recipes are for you!

Mix all together with whisk until smooth. Thats’s it! We eat it on our beans and rice, taco salad, even our homemade chili (next newsletter).


Tallulah Joe Rambo came into this world full of joy and surprises. She was born with a cleft palate due to Pierre Robin sequence. This was something we as parents had never heard of and didn’t find out about until LuLu was born. We didn’t know where to turn or what to do for her future care. In stepped Missy Robertson when LuLu was 14 days old, her first day out of the NICU. She prayed with us and helped with medical information we desperately needed. It has been a long and scary journey. I say journey because we are dealing with the prospect of more surgeries, hearing loss, and speech issues. In spite of all this, LuLu has grown into the strongest and most resilient kid. She is in Kindergarten now, has lots of friends and excelling in the classroom. The amazing emotional support we have received from Mia Moo has truly been a blessing to our entire family. We have been able to connect with parents dealing with the same issues we are going though. We are so blessed to be apart of the Mia Moo family.
