Parents can sometimes be unfair. As a parent, you need to love your son/daughter, the moment they are born. We should not be ashamed of them, no matter how they look, or how they are. But, be proud, and live to support them.
A boy named, Jono Lancaster, was abandoned by his parents when he was 36 hours old. He hadn’t even completed a week, and his parents had already abandoned him. They didn’t even feel chills, abandoning their own son.
Jono was born with a rare genetic disorder, called the Tricer Collins Syndrome, which affects the formation of facial bones. Jono was just an innocent kid, abandoned, and left alone. We will always have that mentality, of wanting a beautiful kid, who has all flaws, but in reality, no one is ugly.
We are all beautiful in different ways. His mother was completely horrified when she saw her son. She made up her mind, that she couldn’t take care of the child, and raise him.
What type of mother, leave her one son because of his looks? She didn’t understand that he had a genetic disorder.
His cheekbones were stretched, and his eyes dropped lower. I find him unique, then the rest, as he looks so different than the rest. I’d say he’s more handsome than the other people.
Other than the genetic disorder, he also had problems with hearing, and the doctor had said that he wouldn’t walk or talk at all. Yes, this would affect you as a parent, but it shouldn’t be the reason to abandon your own son.
Jodo’s future was in jeopardy. He had a lot of problems, but such people make it in life. These problems make them stronger. A woman named Jin had taken care of him when he was 2 weeks old, and later adopted him when he was 5 years old. Jin has good qualities of a mother!
Sometimes, the adoptive mothers act more motherly, than the biological mothers. They treat you as their own, they feed you and raise you to be one amazing guy in the future.
20 years have passed, and the boy who seemed to have no bright future became a successful young man. The doctors said he won’t walk, but he is walking, they said he won’t talk, but he’s talking and sharing his message.
God blesses you one way or another. He is handsome, and fit young man right now.
In his years, he has lived thinking positively, so that he could get to where he is now. Everyone has been looking at him and underestimating him, but he has lived to prove them wrong.
His attitude is above and beyond! In this life people get to be cruel, and so judgmental, the only thing you need to do is to stay strong.
He even says that he didn’t want to be like this, but God is the one who created him that way, and has a reason. Everything happens for a reason, and for a season.
One of his favorite places is the gym. You know how we love working out, and enjoying the morning vibe, this is exactly what Jono likes about the gym.
This is the place where he releases the negative energy, and it’s the safe place where he gets strength and motivation to move on. As you can see, he is quite fit, and the tattoos all over him are pretty sleek!
At the age of 25, he thought of contacting his biological parents, to see how they are doing. Luckily, the adoption service was able to deliver his message to them. Hoping that they would start afresh, they refused to meet him.
On top of that, they said that he should not bother them with such requests anymore.
Jono felt heartbroken once more, but this did not break him down, but he found the strength to forgive his parents. Damn! Jono has a heart of gold. If this could have been some other person’s situation, they would have disowned their parents.
He wasn’t angry at them, and he wished that people wouldn’t condemn his biological parents, for making such a decision.
He said that they did what they thought was best for them, and because of their decision, he had gone down the road, and met amazing people.
Now, Jono lives like the rest, whereby he does sports, travels around the world, and even helps children who suffer from the same disease. He is living a good life.
He teaches them to accept themselves, and we can too learn from this teaching. We need to love and appreciate ourselves for who we are. Many will underestimate you, but don’t let that be your breakdown.
Jono went through all that, and now he has set a good example for the rest. And as parents, we need to take care of our children, let’s not abandon each other no matter what!
