A Tennessee mom documented the struggles of raising a son who was born with a rare form of cleft palate that left him with no eyes.

In this remarkable seven minute YouTube video, Lacey Buchanan shares her struggles of raising her son Christian who was born with a very rare disease. (Can’t get enough emotional baby videos? Here’s another tearjerker for you too!)

In the YouTube video, Lacey holds up cards to tell us Christian’s inspiring story, from the excitement of getting pregnant, to the devastating news of his diagnosis.

Fighting back tears, the mom also shared her fears and the awful comments that followed after Christian was born. People would ask her, “What’s wrong with your kid?”

It’s a heart-wrenching must-watch. The best part? When she proudly holds up Christian, now 1, to the camera to reveal his adorable face!
