One Week Till Surgery
One more week before our baby's face is changed forever. One more week before they erase what I love so much... that beautiful wide smile that encompasses the room and melts our hearts. I have grown to love and cherish Noah's cleft, the beautiful face I fell in love with at birth. The cleft that frightened and shocked me so much at our first ultrasound is now what I secretly long to keep. I have photographed it endlessly from every angle and yet it is still not enough. My mind knows that for function it must be done, and yet my heart still hesitates. Noah's cleft has taught us the meaning of true beauty, the beauty in all of God's creations and I will miss the cleft.
