I have a boy who will be 5 in July.  He was born with a complete unilateral cleft lip and palate and has had three operations to repair this.  The worse thing for us was seeing him going into theatre and crying after the anaestetic.  I honestly think that things are worse for us than for them - my son tells everyone about his cleft and his operation and genuinely believes he is special because he has a hole in his gun which his friends don't have.  He had his operations at Alder Hey in Liverpool
