A 7 years old boy named Madden from Oklahoma was born with a cleft lip and heterochromia iridum (different color eyes), and boys at his school thought it’s fun to tease Madden for his unique appearance.
A friend in the cleft moms group of Madden’s mom, Christina Humphreys, about an image of a cat which was recused by a group in Minnesota. The kitty not only has a cleft lip like Madden, he also has complete heterochromia iridum, like Madden. They were destined to be best friend.
Madden named the cat Moon and found it really like a miracle against all odds. “Heterochromia iridum is when a part of the iris has at least two colors. Complete heterochromia iridum, where the eyes are completely different colors all together, is quite rare, existing in less than 1% of the population, I’m told. That plus the cleft lips is exceptionally rare.”
“We’re usually not spontaneous people, but we knew that we were meant to love this kitty. Moon, the kitty, and Madden are the perfect companions for each other. In a word full of bullies and hateful words, we will choose to chase love. I think it’s safe to say that this kitty is love, and was certainly meant to be part of our journey and Madden’s journey.” – said Christina.
Moon definitely made Madden’s world became brighter and full of hope.
Both were born with a cleft lip paired with a rare eye condition called heterochromia iridum, existing in less than 1% of the population.
Everything about this friendship is miracle. This reminds me of Professor Dumbledore’s quote “Happiness can be found even in the darkest place, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”
“I’m stunned at how this all played out” Madden’s Mom explained. “It sounds silly, but fate willed these two together”
“In a world full of bullies and hateful words, we still choose to chase love,”
The kid explained his negative experiences and the way he dealt with them in this inspiring anti-bullying video.
