The 41-year-old Chicago resident was born with an orofacial syndrome without a jaw, a rare congenital disease brought on by a faulty gene.
He was missing a jaw from birth. He was unable to use his mouth to communicate or eat due to an uncommon disease. But now that Joseph has finally met his true love, he has something to look forward to.
“Dating was also hard for me because I had such low self-esteem and felt worthless, but when I started believing in myself and realized I deserved more, I ended up finding my wife,” he said.
He added that “We were friends at first, but we eventually started dating and fell in love,” he told Caters News Agency. “We got married in 2020. I’m sure people would never have expected me to get married. To be honest, I didn’t think I would either.”
