Having a child with the abnormalities is heartbreaking for the parents. The survival of these children wholly depends on the way people treat them and most importantly how their parents deal with them. Those parents need to be courageous enough to accept their toddlers with deformity and love them the way they are.
Here are the stories of those three kids who were born with a rare condition called 'Congenital Arhinia'. They were born without noses and I am sure their stories will inspire you all.
A couple named Brandi McGlathery and Troy Thompson were expecting a baby as parents normally do but unfortunately, the baby (Timothy Eli) got born prematurely on March 4, 2015.
McGlathery, the mother wrote,"Who knew someone so tiny could change so many people's lives in such a short time? Our perfect miracle baby." She said, "My biggest fear for Eli is that the world won't see him as the beautiful, brave little boy that I see him as."
He wasn't able to breathe properly so he had to undergo therapy. He was kept under observation for 3 weeks in the hospital.
But doctors are unsure whether that will work or not. He even underwent an eye exam and cranial scan to look over things and results were normal for him.
Tessa was born in February 2013 and her condition was spotted during the 20-week scan.
The 3D scan and tests were normal and she was found healthy earlier.
"Doctors were able to stabilize her so she could breathe on her own and eventually I was allowed to hold her for a few seconds, I kissed her forehead and told her I loved her before they took her away."
Her left eye had cataract but even after surgery, she wasn't able to see from it.
She plays and dances and she now has a nose shaped mound that will be replaced every time she grows up little.
Cassidy Hooper was born without nose and eyes. Since she was 11, she had undergone several facial reconstruction treatments at North Carolina.
And the best thing was, no one could demotivate her and shake her optimism.
"Things always may be hard…but here's what I think: I don't need easy, I just need possible."
It would cost her $10K. Well, if you want to help her, visit her site.
