Donna Waldron thinks its love at first sight but is badly let down. Dr Ryan Kennedy is only amusing  himself during boring workplace training. Heartbroken, she doesn't notice her pregnancy until seven months and believes her lack of prenatal care caused her son's cleft lip and palate.
  
While waiting for a plane, Ryan sees a newspaper photo of the first New Year's Day baby, who has the rare cleft lip and palate he survived. Medical secretary Donna didn't contact him so his resemblance to her child must be co-incidental. With this self centred reasoning, he travels abroad. 
  
Nine months later, Ryan reappears, accepts Liam as his child and invites them to move into his house until after Liam's essential surgery. However, his detached behaviour suggests he is hiding secrets so Donna can't afford to trust him or see a future together again.

It's so sad that she bashes herself for something that she was completely unaware of and was therefore out of her control.
We had to use a special Haberman feeder for my youngest in the beginning as well; they're specifically designed for babies with a cleft palate (though my son didn't have that, he just had difficulties sucking his milk from the bottle). They were so expensive! Like ten euro's per feeder. Ridiculous.

Cleft lip and palate surgeries are not that success in giving better appearance in adult hood. As far as i have seen children.
Mixes up left and right. Happens to me all the time, lol ☺️
