No More “Rabbit Lips”

Every time Jun Ho tried to make friends, the other children just mocked him. Learn what special gift turned everything around. Read Transcript


EVERY TIME LITTLE JUN HO MA

TRIED TO MAKE FRIENDS, THE

OTHER CHILDREN JUST

LAUGHED.

HE TRIED SO HARD TO GET

ALONG WITH PEOPLE.

HE USED TO COME HOME

CRYING AND POINTING AT HIS

LIPS.

THE KIDS CALLED HIM RABBIT

LIPS.

I JUST HELD HIM IN MY ARMS

AND CRIED WITH HIM.

Terry: JUN HO WAS BORN

WITH A SEVERE CLEFT LIP AND

PALATE.

HE@ HAD A HARD TIME EATING,

SO HE WAS SMALL FOR HIS

AGE.

AND AS HARD AS HIS PARENTS

TRIED TO SAVE MONEY FOR HIS

CLEFT LIP SURGERY, THEYú0

COULD NEVER AFFORD IT.

SOON JUN HO GAVE UP TRYING

TO MAKE FRIENDS AND SPENT

ALL OF HIS TIME WITH HIS PET

BUNNY RABBIT.

IT WAS THE ONLY FRIEND HE

HAD WHO WOULD NOT LAUGH AT

HIM.

I KNEW THE LONGER HE HAD TO

LOOK AT HIMSELF WITH THAT

CLEFT LIP, THE MORE INSECURE

HE WOULD BE.

I WORRIED ABOUT HIS

FUTURE, BUT THERE WAS

NOTHING I COULD DO.

Terry: AFTER ASKING

EVERY ORGANIZATION THEY KNEW

OF FOR ASSISTANCE, THE MAHS

WERE JUST ABOUT TO GIVE UP

HOPE.

THEN THEY HEARD ABOUT CBN.

WE OFFERED TO HELP PROVIDE

CLEFT LIP AND PALATE SURGERY

FOR JUN HO.

THERE WAS A REAL LIGHT EN

OU IN OUR DARK WORLD.

I KNEW AT ONCE THAT MY SON'S

LIP WOULD BE FIXED.

FINALLY HIS BROKEN HEART

WOULD BE HEALED.

Terry: JUN HO CAME OUT

OF SURGERY WITH A CONFIDENCE

HE NEVER HAD BEFORE.

TODAY HE HAS LOTS OF FRIENDS

AND GREAT HOPE FOR HIS

FUTURE.

IT IS LIKE HE IS A

COMPLETELY DIFFERENT BOY.

HE CAN EAT NOW, SO HE IS

GETTING BIGGER.

HE LOVES TO SMILE, AND HE

HAS A VERY OUTGOING

PERSONALITY.

HE IS EVEN GOING TO START

PLAY SCHOOL SOON.

NOW JUN HO LIKES TO LOOK

AT HIMSELF IN THE MIRROR.

BUT MORE IMPORTANT, HIS

CHARACTER IS HEALTHY NOW.

AS A FATHER, I JUST WANT TO

SAY THANK YOU.

WHEN OTHER PEOPLE WENT OUT

OF THEIR WAY TO AVOID US,

CBN CAME TO US FROM FAR AWAY

TO HELP.

AND YOU DIDN'T EVEN KNOW

US.

I CAN REALLY FEEL THE LOVE.
