"They said that his birth defect was because of a failed abortion"
Jerymy's grandmother Gemma:
When Jerymy was born my daughter was sad, but not particularly worried. She'd seen children with cleft palate before and knew it could be fixed. But when his father saw him, he left the room, and he hasn't really been part of our lives since. That makes me very sad. Sometimes they meet by chance, because his father lives nearby, but he never says a word to his boy. Now that Jerymy's had his surgery, his father said only one thing when they met, 'Oh, is that you, Jerymy?' That was all. It makes me so sad.
