He was a mere 36-hours old when his biological family gave Jono Lancaster up for adoption. He was born with a genetic disorder called Treacher Collin Syndrome (TCS) and his mother couldn’t get past how he looked. She stated that he did not experience a natural bond with him and so she let him go. Due to his condition, his facial bones were disfigured in the womb which ultimately changed his appearance because he did not develop any cheekbones which also caused his eyes to droop. This also affected his hearing and so the doctors told his parents that he would probably never walk or talk.
