Zsa Zsa Palagyi - 700 Club Producer

Mrs. Zhou felt a connection with her baby the instant she felt movement in her womb.  She remembers, “I patted my belly and I immediately guessed it was going to be a boy.”

She was right!  She had a boy and named him YiGao.  But she never guessed her fourth child would be born with a cleft lip, and still struggling two years later.

“He could not eat much,” Mrs, Zhou shares.  “So he was weaker than most children his age.”

Mrs. Zhou already worked long hours to provide for her family, but she started working even more to save up for surgery for her son.  She knew without it, YiGao would soon be mute. Neighbors had already started making fun of him. 

Mrs. Zhou says, “Kids mocked him and said, ‘Look at his mouth. It’s so ugly!’  It hurt me so much.” 

It bothered Yi Gao’s sister, too.  She confesses, “It made me really upset, so I tried to protect my brother and make people stop laughing at him.  I love him so much.”

Meanwhile, YiGao’s cleft lip got bigger and worse.

Mrs. Zhou recalls, “He never actually closed his mouth.  So he caught many colds and had high fevers.” 

When CBN heard about YiGao, we contacted Mrs. Zhou right away and told her we would cover the cost for Yi Gao’s cleft lip surgery.  Everyone was amazed at the transformation!

“YiGao likes to smile now and look in the mirror,” Mrs Zhou says proudly.  “He feels good about himself and when people ask him if his lip is cracked any more, he says ‘Not anymore!  My mouth is fixed!’  I am deeply moved by your love.” 

YiGao’s sister concludes, “Thank you CBN for fixing my brother’s mouth!  I’ve never been happier than now.”
