A New Smile, a Bright Future

See how this baby’s face was transformed by a simple act of kindness from friends like you. And here a personal message from his thankful grandparents. Read Transcript


THEY WERE EXCITED WHEN

THEIR DAUGHTER IN LAW WAS

PREGNANT. THEY KNEW THEY

WOULD

BE RAISING THEIR GRAND CHILD

BECAUSE THEIR SON AND

DAUGHTER

WERE DISABLED.

MY SON HAS A CLEFT LIP.

MY HEART SUNK TO THE

GROUND. HOW WOULD THIS CLEFT

LIP HELP HIM.

HE CHOKED WHEN HIS GRANDMA

WOULD GIVE HIM HIS BOTTLES

AND

HE WAS VERY SMALL.

OTHER KIDS MADE FUN OF HIM

WHEN HE STARTED SCHOOL AND

THERE WAS NO WAY ANYONE WOULD

MARRY HIM WITH HIS CLEFT LIP.

HE WOULD NEED SURGERY.

MR. DUE COULDN'T AFFORD

THAT. HE WORKED THREE JOBS

BUT

BARELY MADE $60 A MONTH.

MY HUSBAND TRIED SO HARD.

HE NEVER GOT ANY REST AND I

WAS EXHAUSTED TRYING TO TAKE

CARE OF GABL AT MY AGE. I

ADMIT AT ONE POINT, I FELT

LIKE GIVING UP.

THAT'S WHEN THE COUPLE

HEARD ABOUT A CLEFT LIP

CLINIC

THAT CBN WAS HELPING TO

COORDINATE. GAB IN WAS

SCHEDULED FOR SURGERY RIGHT

AWAY.

I CAN'T BELIEVE ANYONE

WOULD GIVE MY SON FREE

SURGERY

BUT YOU DID. YOU CAME AT THE

RIGHT TIME.

HIS LIP WAS REPAIRED BY

EXPERT DOCTORS AND TODAY,

HE'S

LIGHTING UP HIS GRANDPARENTS

LIVES OOVMENT

BEFORE THE SURGERY, HE

DIDN'T HAVE ANY STRENGTH TO

WALK AND NOW HE'S EATING AND

WALKING.

YOU HAVE GIVEN A LIFE OF

HOPE. MY GRANDSON IS GOING TO

HAVE A BRIGHT FUTURE NOW.
