Operation Smile

Six years ago my son was born.

He was a beautiful baby with silky black hair and golden skin. And, like 1 in 1,000 children in the US, he was born with cleft lip/palate.

We are very lucky to live in America where doctors and hospitals and specialists aren't hard to find. But in many countries, families don't have that luxury.

Operation Smile is a non-profit organization that sends doctors, surgeons, and specialists to remote locations in the world to fix children who've been ostracized in their communities. It's a cause dear to my heart and we've donated before as a family. 

But now I'm bringing this to you. I'm sending 10% of my opening weekend sales for Destiny Bewitched to Operation Smile.

If you buy Destiny Bewitched the weekend of June 22nd, you''ll be helping to donate to this cause. So please keep that in mind and I'll have more reminders on social media when it gets closer. 

And last, but not least...

Happy Birthday to my little boy!


  1. Beautiful! That's what he is and that's what you are. Wishing you and the little guy a great day.

  2. I have seen a youtube post of a woman with her son and it just made me cry. She was one of the strongest mothers I have seen and now I can say I know one.

    You are an amazing woman and mother. Total respect in my heart for you and your family. Wish your little man an amazing birthday and thank you for the share. Will try to remember on June 22. :)

  3. So good of you to give to such a good cause!!!

    Happy Birthday to your little one!

  4. Happy Birthday to your young man!! What a wonderful cause to support. I have a friend who was born with a cleft lip, soft palate , and hard palate about 30 years ago. I remember when she came home from the hospital as I was 10 at the time. Treatments were so different then and the technology today makes it almost unnoticeable. It is sad to see such a treatable condition go untreated. Thank you and your son for bringing this to the awareness of those around us. Best wishes for great sales.

  5. Happy Birthday!!! I'll be buying that day for sure! Anything to help those kids and their beautiful smiles!

  6. thank you so much for the kind words and support! i hope to get lots of sales so i can send a good chunk to the organization!

  7. What an awesome cause. I wish you tons of sales. And happy birthday to your little one! :)
