Born wanting to share a beautiful smile
by Barbara I waniuk
My name is Barbara, I was born with a cleft lip and palate. After numeroous surgeries as a child it was repaired.
As a child I did not receive regular dental care, from an abusive and neglectful mother and stepfather.
By the time I hit my late teens I lost many teeth because of domestic violence, I work a full time job and still would never be able to afford the amount of work I need, now I have bettered my life, and still always have the constant reminder when I smile.
