Good story about why babies should be born. A nephew in-law had a baby 11 years ago and it was born with a cleft palate. I remember the look of fear on his face as he tried to digest something was wrong with his new daughter. Today, the girl looks absolutely normal and is going to be a knockout. She’s also so bright it’s a bit of work to maintain the adult role when having a conversation.

At that time, 1968, there were still a lot of doctors not up to speed. We talked to one who wanted to wait 5 years then start a round of surgery and bone breaking. Mary would have suffered for 5 or 6 years of that.

I remember digging a lot of baby poop out of the top of those casts with Q tips, LOL.

My mother in law got upset when she found out I was using the wire cutters from my toolbox to split the old casts. I asked her how she would do it and she couldn't come up with an answer. It was probably the only time in her life she was speechless!
