Hi, my name is Jasilyn (Jazzy) Sitzmann. I was born with a severe bilateral cleft lip and palate.  I am 12 years old and have had 13 surgeries. I am not like most kids though– I LOVE my cleft. When I am told I have to have a surgery, my heart drops. All my doctors are so used to people wanting to change, but to me God made me this way. So to have someone tell me I need a surgery to fix something on me, it  is heartbreaking.
