Christian was born with a Tessier Cleft Lip and Palate which caused his eyes to cleft. He has had a surgery to close the cleft lip, and will require many more surgeries to repair the palate. He is such a happy and healthy little boy and he is so spoiled and so loved! He inspires people every day, and beams with the love of God.

    I saw his mom’s video today, and I couldn’t help but cry. He’s such a beautiful baby boy, and to know that he’s healthy is astonishing. The fact that he brings joy to so many peoples lives is incredible. He’s obviously a very happy baby, just look at that smile! His parents are truly blessed. <3

    Before this morning, I had never heard of Christian. I saw on one of my friend’s websites a link to the video, so I watched it…and I fell in love with this story. Never before in my life have I seen such a beautiful family. His mother is such a blessing to me in that she never gave up when so many others would have. And Christian is an inspiration as well! It is the grace of God that gave him to her and because of that her life will be more fulfilling than it would have been if she had decided to make the other decision. No doubt there will be hard times, but with perseverance and prayer, everything will work out as it should. All I can say is God bless them both, and may they both enjoy long, happy, and fulfilling lives as the incredible people they are!

    I showed Christian’s picture to my 16 month old baby girl & she smiled and said “babyyyy” with the look on her face she gets when she sees something (or in this case someone) really cute & blew him a kiss. He is precious. And both he and his parents are a beautiful inspiration to the world. I’m sure they will influence many lives. Thank you for sharing your story.

    Christian you are an angel that came down from heaven. You are a handsome little boy. I love you little angel. Your condition won’t stop you to have a bright future my little angel. I love you little baby angel. Your my inspiration to never give up on life little Christian. You symbolize hope baby boy. I wish you all the best. A happy Mothers Day to your Mom for doing the right thing. She is an angel in many ways.

  16. You gave us an inspirational love on how to be a good mother despite all problems we had..i really salute you for being a wonderful mom who understands and loves the child for being who he his.. you are a great mother…God bless you

  17. I believe every child has a purpose in life. They are not mistakes or tragedies, to be pitied. But people made for Gods special plans. I think right now Christian’s purpose must be to bring all of us some joy, but also to make us think about how we treat one another, and why we seem to judge, lable and dismiss those we don’t feel are worthy. Keep it up little guy, and congratulations mom and dad for making the choice to raise your little man. I wish you all of God’s richest blessings, may He give you strength for today and all the days ahead.

  18. Your Story brought tears of Joy for your Special sweet Boy!
