[VIDEO] Baby was abandoned because of his face–but despite rocky childhood, now he’s an inspirational figure

A baby was abandoned by his parents just 36 hours after birth, because of his face. Jono Lancaster has Treacher Collins syndrome, a genetic disorder that alters development of facial bones and tissues. A wonderful woman adopted and raised him,  and although he was just like any other boy, he had a tragic childhood. He was constantly teased and had low self-esteem. Everything changed though when he met Laura, the love of his life, when he was 19. He started to change the way he thought about things and transformed his life. Now, he’s a motivational speaker and father to a beautiful baby girl.
