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.

This was a Wattpad featured story in Chicklit.

I love this story. I have a cleft lip and palate, and it's so nice to see people like me represented. God bless you for writing this.

I taught So Needs for 40 years.  Each child is different be it physical or mental.
                              Those rude people should have to do a very very long rotation with them and maybe they would get the idea.
And I would be walking out and calling my attorney.  As the mom of a special needs kiddo I have to say I have NEVER come across any docs or medical persons this rude and unprofessional.  I need to be this gal's friend so I can help her out. Excuse me while I just pop into the story line

This is wonderfully written. Thank you for giving accurate information.
Are you kidding me right now? How is any of this their business? And why in the world is she trying to explain anyways?
Do doctors really act this way??! My doctors have always been so friendly and approachable. 🙁😢Baby Liam is so endearing 😭
