Why I am signing up for...

Smile Portrait Project
"I know when I am happy and I smile naturally it really touches, moves and inspires folks. Even if I didn't have a nice smile it's still inviting if I am smiling. That goes for anyone who smiles. Smiles really bring out the inner beauty of people. Seeing children with cleft lips/ palates in photos and thinking that these kids will possibly be shunned based on what they look like visually just rips me up inside. I can't imagine being deprived of the smile I have been blessed with. I don't want another to be deprived of enjoying their own smile and would love to know that the family and friends around those kids are enjoying their smiles as well."
