To our parents, we will always be the most beautiful children in the world. And this most often is true regardless of what the rest of the world says. And these two parents were no different. The young parents stood firmly by their son like a rock when people gave him disgusted stares. Not just that, they treated this opportunity as a blessing to spread awareness about the condition their son was born with.
When she was just 24-weeks pregnant, Sarah learned that her unborn baby had a cleft lip and palate. Her partner, Chris, was shocked to hear the news. They reportedly got a lot of criticism from people, including those who were supposed to be in charge of care. Nevertheless, both parents wanted to share as many pictures as they could with their baby, despite his deformity. Later, Sarah realized just how supportive people were of their child.
“The generosity of a complete stranger restored our faith in humanity,” Sarah told TODAY in an email. “Being Brody’s parent has taught me that people care. Strangers all over the country want to hear his story, and they want to pray for him.” Although experts do not know what causes a cleft palate, they do know it happens during pregnancy when tissues don’t fuse properly. Children usually undergo a series of surgeries to correct the cleft to the lips or palets and often need to have therapy to talk or eat as they grow older.
Although people often say unkind things about their baby boy, Heller and Eidam are ready to fight back and teach the ignorant masses the truth about their son – that he is a beautiful baby despite his lip and palate. Brody is now all grown up and looks amazing. His mom shares photos on her social media account. Here’s how the boy looks today. Enjoy your life Brody and take care.
