A mothers journey
Ramona was 6 months pregnant with twin boys when doctors noticed one of the children would be born with a life threatening condition - they advised she terminate the pregnancy. But she decided to give birth to her boys...
The moment they were born, she new Gabriel would be much different than Hadin...he was diagnosed with Pierre Robin Syndrome. This disease causes for his lower jaw to be underdeveloped, and his tongue is pushed back further in his mouth. He has trouble breathing because of his cleft pallet.
With kids at school bullying Gabriel because he was different, Hadin made sure to always stick up for his brother. âSomeone came and told me I must have drank a lot during pregnancy because he had a clef palate,â Ramona revealed.
Gabriel made sure to remain happy and positive despite what people said about him. Now at 20 years old, Gabriel has decided to undergo groundbreaking surgery to make him look identical to Hadin...
Gabriel had plastic surgery which gave him a jaw! He now hopes to lead a more normal life with his new look, and fit in just like the rest of us!
