Baby born without a jaw and the ability to speak – 20 years later Isaiah Acosta is making waves in the music industry

Isaiah Acosta was born in 1999 and he was born fighting for his life.

A condition known as situs inversus meant that at birth he was deprived of oxygen for 15 minutes; he was born without a jaw and without eating or speaking capacity.

Doctors told his mom that he wouldn’t have a great quality of life even if he survived, but 20 years on and that this fighter not only leads a good life, he also makes waves on the music scene.

Isaiah Acosta is living evidence from Phoenix, Arizona, that you should never give up on your dreams.

He was born without a jaw and was not anticipated to survive, delivered two months early.

He didn’t have a voice or a way to eat and still needs a tube to breathe.

But Isaiah has survived, and since then he has been a fighter.

In a documentary about Isaiah’s life, his mother Tarah describes what a miracle her son is.

“Everything in his body is a mirror image flipped backwards. His stomach, his heart, I mean everything.

“Isaiah was born with no jaw so right at birth we had to make a decision whether to save him and take the chance. I was told that he wasn’t going to walk, talk, and pretty much be bed bound. I mean every day we wake up we are lucky that he is here.”

Not only is Isaiah heavily involved in community service, he also lives his dream of being part of the music industry; amazing when you think this amazing young man can’t talk.

Through distinctive gestures and his phone, Isaiah can not only interact, he likes to compose songs.

Phoenix rapper Tikey “Trap House” Patterson helped produce Isaiah’s first rap. Sadly the rapper passed away in January 2019 of cancer.

“You should always rise to be able to do what you want to do and never let the opinions of others hold you back from achieving your goals,” he had told Isaiah.

Isaiah has used his fellow rapper as a major inspiration to keep reaching after his dreams. He even graduated from high school last year, an achievement his family never expected to see.

“I’m going to keep his (Trap House) legacy alive, continuing to share our story, to share kindness,” Isaiah told 12News.
