Thankfully, most people respond positively to Brody, although some may have questions about his appearance.

Sarah didn’t get upset when people asked about her son’s difference. Instead, she felt glad to educate them about it.

She says:

“I chose to educate rather than argue because Brody will want to do it someday. He’s too young to speak up now, but I hope to advocate for children with cleft lips.”

During dinner at a restaurant, the server gave Sarah a note. When she opened it, she cried because it contained a $1,000 check with a message saying it was for her beautiful baby. This act of kindness from strangers restored Sarah’s faith in humanity.

When Brody needed surgery, they used the money for part of the cost. The surgery went well, and Brody is recovering. He’ll need more surgery later, but his parents are happy with his progress.

Brody is really beautiful now, and his parents are happy they made the right choice. There might have been some uncertainty or difficulty in the past, but now they’re all feeling good about things.

If you spread kindness and love everywhere, the world will
become a much better place for everyone.
