All children are not the same and some of them are born with certain deformities and conditions, which is a fact, but it is more than certain that they too deserve respect, love, and treatment like every other kid, especially from their parents. But this baby did not have that luck as she was abandoned by her father at the youngest age due to her looks and was teased and insulted by her peers as she grew up.
The father abandoned the family after seeing his baby’s face.
It all started 21 years ago when the mother, Irene, saw deep wrinkles on the face of her baby Katya. This baby’s face was aging rapidly, not just day by day, but hour by hour. The doctors diagnosed Katya with a disorder and said that the little one would not live longer than a year.
Irene’s husband was frightened by his own daughter and her condition. “I can’t stand this,” he uttered before leaving his wife along with their daughter behind.
Irene decided to continue with her life and provide her child with the happiest childhood possible. She acted as if every day was Katya’s last.
However, despite all the medical forecasts, Katya continued to grow like any other healthy child.
As she grew up, she had to face teasing and insults from other children. “Grandma, why are you wearing a short skirt” or “Why are you acting like a child, grandma?!” Whenever she heard such cruel words, Katya cried.
But it wasn’t until she started school that Katya realized how different she really was from other children. “Only then did I realize that I was not like others. Whenever I turned around, everyone was afraid of me,” she says.
“I asked myself, what did I do to deserve something like this? But there was no answer. Then I realized that I could win people over with my knowledge, wit, charm, and kindness rather than with my face. I am sure that the most important thing for a person is their soul.”
And that’s exactly what she did. Katya became a favorite person at school, and anyone who tried to bully her soon had to face many of her friends.
“I accepted myself and learned how to love myself. Think about it—there are only 20 people like me in the whole world! It’s actually very interesting!”
Her joy delights all who meet her, and she has grown into a brave woman. Some girls her age are afraid to go out without makeup, but Katya doesn’t think about it. Her friends are not the only ones who are won over by her charm and inner beauty. Katya met her husband Denis in an unexpected way: he called her by mistake, referring to the wrong number. They talked, agreed to meet, and soon the romance began. When they decided to get married, Katya was the happiest bride you’ve ever seen.
Soon the couple received more news: Katya was pregnant. Skeptics criticized her decision to even think about having children, but Dennis and Katya knew what they wanted. A beautiful son was born 9 months later.
“I feel wonderful. Courage helped me overcome all the life difficulties I had because of my face. And now my husband and I have been rewarded with a beautiful son – what could be better?” said Katya.
Her story is a beautiful reminder that nothing and no one, not even the worst medical diagnosis, can take away a person’s right to be happy. See how she looks now.
