This Minion hat was made especially for Haiden, who was born with a cleft lip. He will have to undergo many surgeries to fix his lip. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that each year 4,437 babies are born with a cleft lip. The complications that can arise from having a cleft lip are problems with feeding, talking, dental disease, as well as ear infections. Usually many surgeries are needed to correct the cleft lip.
In about a week, Haiden will be undergoing another surgery to correct his cleft lip, please send him prayers for a speedy recovery. Haiden is just so adorable and here is the picture proof of that:
Thank you so much Haiden for letting us share your story and sending us these adorable pictures. Please stop by and show Haiden some love at Hope for Haiden. We hope that you enjoy your hat. We will be praying for a surgery gone well and a speedy recovery.
