What if Your Baby Couldn't Smile?

Like any new mom, Angela was very excited to finally meet her baby boy—and then was devastated when he was born with a cleft lip and palate. Read what your generous gifts did for this little boy. Read Transcript


Reporter: ANGELA WAS EXCITED

ABOUT HAVING HER FIRST BABY,

BUT WHEN HER SON, TSANTA,

WAS BORN WITH A

CLEFT LIP AND PALATE,

THE NEW MOM WAS DEVASTATED.

IT WAS A SHOCK FOR ME.

I WAS EXPECTING TO SEE MY

SON CRYING LIKE EVERY OTHER

BABY, BUT WHEN IT'S NURSES

TOLD ME ABOUT HIS PROBLEMS,

I CRIED AND CRIED.

Reporter: SHE KNEW HER

SON WOULD HAVE A DIFFICULT

LIFE.

IT WAS HARD FOR ME TO SEE

MY SON SWALLOW FOOD AND EVEN

BREATHE.

Reporter: WHERE THEY

LIVED IN MA MADAGASCAR, NO

ONE COULD HELP THEM.

TRAVELLING FOR SURGERY WOULD

BE TOO EXPENSIVE.

I KNEW MY SON NEEDED

SURGERY, BUT THERE IS WAS NO

WAY WE COULD EVER AFFORD

IT.

Reporter: ONE DAY WHEN

ANGELA WAS WATCHING THE

FRENCH VERSION OF "THE 700

CLUB," SHE HEARD HOW THEY

WERE HELPING OTHER CHILDREN

WITH CLEFT PALLETS.

SHE WAS ON HER WAY.

AND THE WHOLE TRIP AND THE

SURGERY WAS PAID BY CBN.

I'M VERY GRATEFUL.

THE LORD SHOWED HIS LOVE TO

OUR SON.

AND NOW HE WILL BE ABLE TO

GROW UP AND HAVE A NORMAL

LIFE.

Reporter: THANKS TO

CBN, SANTO WILL BE ABLE TO

MAKE FRIENDS, FIND A JOB,

AND HAVE A FAMILY ONE DAY.

CBN HAS BEEN THE HAND OF

GOD STRETCHED OUT TO US.

THANK YOU.
