A little about the Author: Julie Cwir is a stay-at-home mom from a small town in Canada and is the compiler and editor of this book. Julie has always been creative, resourceful and driven. She likes to exert her creativity through singing, sewing and writing songs and children’s books.
In July 2011, Julie gave birth to a son with a cleft lip. Since then, she has been open to support any other parents of cleft affected children. This event has introduced another passion in her life and that is to support the cleft lip and palate cause.
With the help of another mom of a cleft child, Cwir created “I Wish I’d Known… How Much I’d Love You.” She aims to help other local cleft parents and provide resources to the cleft community.
