Story written by Kristopher Hall
Suchart and Sophang were both born with cleft lips and palates in the same farming village, and although they would not have been alone, their parents are much happier that they will be able to share a story with a happy ending instead of one with continual struggle and hardship. These children of farmers will already have enough adversity and obstacles laid before them without the additional burden of a physical deformity, but now they will be able to form a bond of shared success as they move forward in lives that their parents hope will be filled with good educations, jobs and the opportunities to help others as they have been helped. It is great to think of what these two can achieve together in lives that have already started with so much hope and luck.
