When Jono Lancaster was only 36 hours old, his parents abandoned him. The baby was born with a rare genetic disorder, called Tricer Collins syndrome, which affects the formation of facial bones.
Jono's biological mother was horrified to see her son, so the woman immediately stated that she did not he could take care of the child and raise him.
Jono's cheekbones stretched and his eyes moved down. In addition, he had hearing problems and, as the doctor said, the child would not have the ability to walk or talk.
The poor baby's future was in danger, but fortunately, a woman with a big heart, called Jin, took care of him when he was only 2 weeks old and then adopted him when he was 5.
20 years have passed since then, and now Jono is a successful young man who wants to share his message with the world!
"I have had to be positive all my life. Everyone looks at me and underestimates me, and I've always had to show that people are wrong, "said the boy.
"God made me like that for some reason."
One of Jono's favorite places is the gym. It is a safe place that helps him release the negative energy and gives him strength and motivation to move on.
When he was 25 years old, Jono tried to get in touch with his biological parents. The adoption service was able to deliver the boy's message to the parents. And they refused to meet and asked that they no longer be bothered with such requests.
That refusal hurt Jono's feelings again, but he did not collapse and found the strength to forgive his parents. The boy is not angry with them and does not want other people to condemn his biological mother and father for such a decision.
"No one knows what happened when I was born, they did what they thought was best for them. Because of this decision, they put me on this path and thanks to them I am now with wonderful people around me, "said the young man.
Now, Jono practices sports, travels around the world and helps children suffering from the same disease. He teaches them to accept how they are because you must always love yourself.
What do you think of Jono's attitude? It is worthy of admiration.
Do not forget share it with your friends and family!
