7-Year-Old Boy Adopts Cat With Same Rare Eye Condition And Cleft Lip.

Every person is born completely unique. Unfortunately, we live in a world where instead of being embraced for our differences, we're sometimes pointed at, made fun of, and cast to the side. Our uniqueness is laughed at to the point where we become sad and wish to be just like everyone else. This little boy is a unique person, and he found a friend that is actually just like him....well, almost.

Christina Humphreys was scrolling through her group for moms of children with cleft lips and stumbled across something that stopped her in her tracks.

You see, Christina's son Madden doesn't just have a cleft lip. Madden has complete heterochromia iridum - a condition where the person's eyes are two completely different colors.

As she was scrolling, Christina found a picture of a cat that was taken in by a rescue group.

The cat also had complete heterochromia iridum, but he had also had a cleft lip! Madden and the cat were just alike!

Christina knew that they were destined to bring that cat into their lives.

Unfortunately, they were in Oklahoma and the cat was in Minnesota. But thankfully, some of Christina's friends funded a road trip so she would be able to go get the cat that was destined to be Madden's friend.

Madden decided to name his new best friend Moon.

And now Madden and Moon can face the world together! “In a world 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.

Christina hopes that Moon can teach Madden some things about being unique.

“I hope Moon helps Madden realize that being born unique in an incredible thing; that he is magic," she said. “Everyone needs a friend, and everyone needs to feel understood. I’m so thankful Madden has Moon.”

Christina hopes that Moon can teach Madden some things about being unique.
