Jean Paul’s Story
Jean Paul (pictured above with his grandma and his mom) lives in small town on the outskirts of Lima, Peru.
When he was born with a cleft, his family was shocked!
“In the beginning when our baby was born, everything was chaos!” his mother recalls. “Everyone worried. We asked ourselves what was going to happen to this baby.”
Jean Paul’s parents live in a small home in a town on the outskirts of Lima.
When their little boy was born with a cleft, they were so afraid. His mother recalls: “When I first saw him, I was desperate. I was completely lost because I did not know anything about cleft.”
She did not even know if her son would survive!
“At the beginning, we were afraid of everything! We were afraid to feed him!”
