Operation Smile

As I wrote my World War II novel Thief of Glory, one of the main characters came to life for me — Adi, a boy with a cleft palate who roams the village at night. His bravery saves the lives of hundreds of women and children in a nearby concentration camp. My research about the character led me to Operations Smile and the amazing way it changes lives of children like Adi, and since then, I’ve been inspired by Operations Smile to try to help bring a new smile to as many children as possible.
