Henry

Age: 7 months
Guayaquil, Ecuador

When Joselyn was pregnant, she had no idea that Henry had a cleft lip until she saw him for the first time at the hospital. Originally, she didn’t know how to feel about his appearance. She knew that she loved her newborn son, but she felt sad and nervous that people would look at him strangely and treat him differently because of his face. One thing was certain, Henry did not look like all of the other babies in the nursery.

Shortly after Henry’s birth, Joselyn brought him to GSF’s NAM center at Leon Becerra Hospital where he received therapy for 6 months followed by a successful repair of his cleft lip by the GSF team. Joselyn can’t stop talking about Henry’s new smile and is thrilled that others no longer stare at him. She hopes this will make Henry feel better about himself in the future and will allow him to have a normal and happy childhood.
