A child with special needs tried on a unique pair of glasses recently and saw his parents’ faces properly for the first time.
Three-year-old Jaxon has a chromosomal abnormality called DiGeorge syndrome and also known as 22q11.2 deletion, meaning he is missing a piece of his 22nd chromosome which can cause numerous abnormalities, happilynews.com reported Tuesday.

Jaxon has undergone two heart surgeries and faces two more in the future. The toddler also spent the first 255 days of his young life inside the hospital.
