The mission for Cleftopedia is to help new cleft parents with all of the choices they must make by offering a place to evaluate all options in one easy to read location. Cleftopedia is here to educate new and existing parents, and in no way is it meant to sway anyone in any direction. Remember – you, the parent, are your child’s best advocate, and only you know what is best for your child. We’re just here to help along the way!


My name is Hannah Scott. My 22 month old daughter was born with a unilateral cleft lip and palate. I recently published a children's book, The Prettiest Smile, about her first 4 months of life, leading up to her first surgery, the lip repair and rhinoplasty. This book is very near and dear to my heart. I wrote this book for my two babies, and it is about my daughter's cleft lip and palate, told from her big brother, Ezekiel's perspective. Marlie went through a lot in her first year of life, especially the early months. She had her first surgery at 4 months old. There are a lot of other babies that have to go through some of the same things, and some even worse. I want this story to give them hope and let them know that in the end, after everything, it will all be okay. This book is just a little taste of all that Marlie, Ezekiel, and us as parents had to endure leading up to her first surgery. Through it all, our girl has had the biggest and prettiest smile. I pray that this helps someone else on their cleft journey. Amazon link below if you'd like to check it out! God Bless you all on your cleft journey!
