19 years ago, a woman named Ramona gave birth to identical twins, Hadin and Gabriel. The doctors noticed one of the babies‘ faces was malformed – the lower jaw was smaller than normal and the tongue was positioned further back in the mouth. They thoroughly examined the baby boy, Gabriel and discovered he had an extremely rare condition called Pierre Robin Syndrome. As a result of the misshapen jaw, it was hard for Gabriel to breathe and eat, but overall, he grew a healthy and smart boy.

Despite the boy‘s different look, Hadin loves his brother very much and the two share a very special bond. When mean kids at school were bullying Gabriel, he always protected him. He couldn‘t understand how someone could laugh at his brother‘s appearance. What is worse, some people were even blaming Ramona for Gabriel‘s condition. “Someone came and told me I must have drunk a lot during pregnancy because he had a cleft palate,” the woman says.
