The child is the most valuable thing the parents have. When they are only waiting for the birth of their baby, they believe (s)he will be strong and healthy. However, it’s not always like this…
Brandy Mcglatry and her husband would never imagine their child would have any disorders. But when this year on March 4, they saw their newborn for the first time, it was hard for them to cope with emotions.
The woman’s pregnancy went without complications. Ultrasonography didn’t show any pathologies in the fetus, but her son was born without a nose.
The doctors diagnosed him with congenital arrhinia. Currently there are only 40 such cases known, therefore this disease is considered very rare.
When doctors took Elli from his mom, she was crying all night. The woman would once in every 20 minutes call and check if her child was fine.
Arrhinia is frightening with the fact, that the person is unable to eat and breath at the same time. So, in order for the boy to breath while eating and sleeping, he had to undergo tracheotomy.
Doctors say he will have to undergo yet many surgeries up to his teenage years.
When this unique kid’s parents didn’t know how to deal with this terrible problem and how to overcome all the upcoming surgeries, a wonderful meeting awaited them.
This is Tessa Evans. This little girl from Ireland knows firsthand what arrhinia is. The girl is older than Elli and has already undergone several surgeries. Tessa will soon get an artificial nose implanted, which will have to be constantly changed with the girl’s growth.
After this meeting, Elli’s parents realized their baby has every chance to live a normal and happy life. Now they are preparing for another surgery with regained strength.
Tessa’s mom remembers that her daughter liked Eli a lot. For the kids it was a regular meeting with a new friend, but their parents noticed something more.
Just look how this boy looks at the world!
There is a hope living in his heart, and nothing can beat it.
Such cases touch our hearts deeply. It’s said, if God has deprived a person of something, it means He has rewarded them with something more valuable. Wish these children will grow up happy and healthy!
