Baby Diego Gets His Smile

When Baby Diego was born, the nurses were horrified – no one in this Honduran village had seen a cleft lip before. Learn how this baby finally got a real smile. Read Transcript


THERE HAD NEVER BEEN A CHILD

WITH A CLEFT LIP IN THIS

SMALL TOWN IN THE MOUNTAINS

OF HONDURAS UNTIL THIS

BABY WAS BORN.

THEN I KNEW WHAT A CLEFT

LIP WAS.

Terry: BUT SHOCK SOON

TURNED TO

RIDICULE AS THE

FAMILY BROUGHT

THEIR NEW

BABY HOME.

MANY NEIGHBORS CAME TO

SEE HIM BECAUSE THEY NEVER

SAW A CHILD LIKE THAT.

THEY MADE FUN OF HIM AND

SAID HE LOOKED LIKE AN

INSECT.

AND I SAID, YOU SHOULDN'T

MOCK MY SON BECAUSE HE IS

GOD'S WORK.

Terry: THERE WERE MANY

SLEEPLESS NIGHTS FOR DIEGO,

AS HE THOUGHT HOW TO PAY FOR

HIS SON'S PROBLEM.

THAT'S WHEN "OPERATION

BLESSING" OFFERED TO HELP.

SOON BABY

DIEGO RECEIVED THE

LIFE-SAVING SURGERY FREE OF

CHARGE.

I LOOKED AT MY SON AFTER

SURGERY AND IT WAS SUCH A

JOY FOR ME.

I WAS SO HAPPY.

HIS FACE WAS SO

BEAUTIFUL.

HE HAD ALWAYS BEEN SPECIAL

TO ME.

THAT DAY HE LOOKED EVEN MORE

BEAUTIFUL.

Terry: TODAY BABY

DIEGO'S LIP IS COMPLETELY

HEALED, AND HIS PARENTS

CAN'T HELP BUT ENJOY HIS

BEAUTIFUL SMILE.

I AM GRATEFUL TO

"OPERATION BLESSING" BECAUSE

THEY DID FOR MY SON WHAT I

COULD NOT DO FOR HIM.

I THANK YOU, "OPERATION

BLESSING."
