Hallie’s Story

Hallie was born in 2014 with a cleft lip and palate. She was fitted with a NAM device for several months to prepare her for surgery.
Thanks to the work of the Wellspring Craniofacial team and the dedication of her parents, Hallie underwent a successful surgery in October to have her palate repair and nasal revision.


Read what our patients say about Wellspring Craniofacial Group.


“I wish I could go back and tell my pregnant self how things would be right now.  You have transformed my baby girl and given her better results than I ever thought possible.  Every time I look at her, I know that God hand picked her and her story from the start and provided your team to be part of her story.  She is one beautiful baby and you are one humble, amazing and talented surgeon who uses each day to honor Jesus.”


“Heather Early and the rest of Dr Hobar’s team truly love our precious children!  You feel it from the first introduction to the last stitch and beyond.  Highet praises to this group who work in the name of the Lord!!!  They pray with you every step.  I wouldn’t go anywhere else!!!”


“These people are so much more than a cleft care team. They are there to support families and patients in the most comprehensive way possible. I thank God every day for their presence in my daughter’s life.”


“Love this whole team with all my heart!  They didn’t just take care of my baby girl, they supported us as parents and prayed for us during the whole process!”


“Thank you so much for taking care of our Luke!  You were so kind and reassuring to a worried mama.”

“We know you treat a lot of babies but we truly appreciate all of the attention you gave us.”


“You are special to us and we will keep you and your patients in our prayers.”

“You knew how to speak encouragement and love in the midst of what seems like a mountain to climb.”


“Thank you for loving my daughter and treating her like you would your own.


“God has given you gifts and you are using them beautifully!”


“You have such a huge place in our hearts. We could not be happier with our NAM results!”

“Heather is a blessing in our lives and we thank God for her!”


“We couldn’t have done it without you!”


“Wonderful experience overall. Everyone on staff is so kind, hepful, dedicated and professional. I can’t recommend them highly enough! And the fact that they are involved in the LEAP Foundation proves their desire to give back to the community. “
