This blog is starting today, February 7, 2011 as a way to document my first Operation Smile mission trip to Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Being on a team for Operation Smile has been both a personal and professional goal of mine for quite some time. I had to attend extra training and go though a long application process to get approved for a mission. This mission, I am funding myself (If you would like to make a donation, I accept!). I am considering it as on site training. Operation Smile can only fund one SLP (speech & language pathologist) and since I am new to this I am paying my own way!
To prep for the mission, I have been reading books and looking at google images for cleft palate to desensitize myself to what awaits. I anxiously await the experience!
