My son was born with a cleft palate too.
Not sure if you've seen it, but here us a video going around Facebook about one of the duck dynasty guys who's daughter was born with one. Check it out, it may help. Also if it is, the surgeries are really good for it. A baby went through it that was our roommate at children's hospital when my daughter had to have her tonsils and adnoids removed at 18 months old.
Thanks.. I been doing my research.... All I can do at this is pray
