Everything changes for a toddler when he sees his parents’ faces for the first time.
Jaxon is a special needs child and he looked overjoyed when he tried on a pair of glasses and saw his parents’ faces for the first time.
3-year-old Jaxon has a chromosomal abnormality known as DiGeorge syndrome, which, more correctly, is a 22q11.2 deletion.
He doesn’t have a small piece of his 22nd chromosome which can cause multiple abnormalities.
Jaxon has had to undergo two heart surgeries and will have at least two more in the future. He has also spent the first 255 days of his life in the hospital.
His parents, Charles Emberton and Cassie Booth said they did not believe that their son’s eyesight was that bad. But after a second opinion, they learned about the strong variety of lenses he would need.
The day finally came on April 13, at Children’s of Alabama, when Charles helped Jaxon try on his new glasses for the first time.
Jaxon’s face immediately lit up and Charles said his reaction proved the world had now opened up for him.
Through this video, Charles and Cassie hope to raise awareness of their son’s unique condition and have started a GoFundMe for a new vehicle, to accommodate Jaxon’s wheelchair and equipment.
