Holding On in Hope

These parents refused to give up hope that their twins would lead a normal life. That’s when you brought the surgeries that gave these twins a brand-new life. Read Transcript


Terry: AFTER 10 YEARS

OF MARRIAGE, THIS COUPLE

STILL COULD NOT HAVE

CHILDREN.

MY PARENTS SUGGESTED WE

ADOPT.

Terry: THE YUs WERE

JUST ABOUT TO GIVE UP WHEN

THE DOCTOR GAVE THEM SOME

STARTLING NEWS.

THEY WERE PREGNANT WITH

TWINS.

BUT NINE MONTHS LATER, THE

BABY BOYS WERE BOTH BORN

WITH CELESTICA LIP CLEFT

LIPS AND PA PALATES.

MRS. YU NEARLY FAINTED WHEN

SHE SAW THEM.

AFTER WAITING SO LONG, IT

SEEMED UNFAIR.

IT WAS SO HARD FOR ME TO

ACCEPT THIS.

Terry: DOCTORS DIDN'T

OFFER MUCH HOPE, EITHER.

THEY SAID THEY NEVER HAD

SEEN SUCH SEVERE CLEFT LIPS

OR PALATES.

AND THEY SAID THE BABIES

NEEDED SURGERY RIGHT AWAY.

Terry: A TWO WEEKS OLD,

THE TWINS GOT PNEUMONIA.

WATCHING THEIR LITTLE

BODIES GET MORE AND MORE

SICK WAS REALLY SCARY.

I WORRIED ABOUT THEM AND

WONDERED IF THEY WOULD GROW

UP TO BE LIKE NORMAL

CHILDREN.

Terry: MR. YU WORKS

HARD DRIVING A TRACTOR, BUT

HE ONLY MAKES $80 A MONTH.

THAT MEANT CLEFT LIP AND

PALATE SURGERIES WAS OUT OF

THE QUESTION.

SOME SUGGESTED THEY GIVE UP

THEIR BABIES.

ONE DOCTOR SUGGESTED THEY

CALLED CBN FOR HELP.

THEY DID.

AND WITHIN A WEEK, CBN HAD

SET UP FREE SURGERIES FOR

THE BOYS.

I WAS SO HAPPY WHEN I

HEARD ABOUT THE KIND-HEARTED

PEOPLE IN THE UNITED STATES,

AND HOW THEY WERE GOING TO

HELP US.

I COULD HARDLY WAIT TO SEE

THE TWINS ALL FIXED UP.

Terry: THE

TRANSFORMATION BROUGHT

SMILES TO THE TWINS' FACES

AND JOY TO THE YU's

HEARTS.

I USED TO THINK THERE WAS

NO HOPE AND LIFE WAS TOO

HARD.

SINCE THE OPERATIONS, MY

TWINS ARE GETTING HEALTHIER

AND HEALTHIER EVERY DAY.

THEY WERE GROWING UP FAST

AND LOOKING LOVELY.

IT IS SO GOOD TO KNOW THERE

IS SOMEONE LIKE CBN OUT

THERE WILLING TO HELP.

I'M EXTREMELY GRATEFUL.

VERY THANKFUL.

NOW THE TWINS WILL HAVE A

BRIGHT FUTURE.
