You might have heard about Juliana Wetmore somewhere, somehow. If not here is your chance to get to know her. She is the girl in the U.S. who was born without a face.

The genetic disorder she was born with is called Treacher Collins syndrome. It causes deformations of the face but her case has been recorded as the most extreme ever in the history.

When she was born her face wasn’t similar to a human baby. Surprisingly her body was in the best shape, though. Doctors didn’t believe she would survive that night because her face was missing bones and she could hardly breathe because of this. But she made it!

 Juliana was also missing important bones in her ears and she was deaf. Her brain was completely functional, though and she could see with her right eye. Her parents developed feelings for her immediately regardless of her deformities. They were determined that if she survives they will provide her the best life possible.

Her parents did what they promised. They took her to countless operations and plastic surgeries so that she could look better. When she was six years old she started attending a school for deaf children and mastered sign language soon.

Even though she has received the best from her family, they were not able to fully understand her feelings because they have never been in the same situation. Far away from them lived a family with a little girl who had the same disorder, though. Danica was the same age as Juliana but with a little bit milder version of the syndrome. Danica lived in an orphanage in Ukraine for a long time and her life wasn’t any easier. When she reached a certain age the care home was not obligated to care for her anymore and she had to live on the streets of her city in Ukraine.

Juliana’s family read about the girl online who desperately needed someone to adopt her. They traveled to Ukraine and immediately decided to take the girl back with them. Danica was luckily adopted to a really loving family with Juliana with whom they could fully understand and support each other.

Danica turned out to be a really great artist and Juliana astonished everyone with her intelligence. The family adopted three more children later. They definitely love children! They can only be admired and respected for what they have done and we wish them the best of health in the future!
