What? Don’t you have a party trick?

Our son, Jack, was born with a cleft lip and palate. (There is so much to his birth and first month story, but that’s his story to tell.) I will say this…

We were getting ready to go on vacation when we got a call that Jack (we were at the time, fostering his biological brother, James) was born and that he happened to be born with a cleft lip and palate (cue lots of googling) but that they didn’t know where he was. Ummmm…what? We cancelled the vacay, went to Target and purchased all of the newborn necessities. A couple of weeks later, they still hadn’t found him and we were supposed to be leaving on vacation. So, logically, I went back to Target and returned everything so that we could (financially) go on vacation. While we were in San Diego, about a day before we were slated to come home, we got a call that they had found our sweet baby boy. He was now one month old. Our favorite DCS Case Manager asked, “How fast can you get home?” We raced home the next morning. George met the case manager at the house while I sprinted around Target re-purchasing everything I needed for this precious baby boy.

Blah Blah blah, surgery, blah blah blah, another surgery, blah blah blah (I’m sure once I can really sit down and write the surgery stories, I will.)

Fast forward 6 years later. Jack has a party trick…

It’s called a fistula. There is a small hole in the roof of his mouth which allows him to shoot liquids through his nose at will. He loves to “wow” his audiences with this SPECIAL party trick. This particular day was at lunch (at Summer school) this year.

LESSON: Target has a great return policy when you have a #RedCard.
