Last year in 2013 August, I gave birth to the most beautiful child ever, my son. When the doctors took him and he was being cleaned, I saw two nurses chatting. their faces were serious, but because I was still being stitched I could not tell what was going on. To my surprise later when my husband asked me about my son’s toes…..Doctor came later to tell me that my son had no toes on his right foot. I cried not knowing how to deal with this.
I thank God now I know about ABS, not only it was discovered after a month that my son is also a DS child, not that there is something Down about him. He was also diagnosed with laryngomalacia that he needed to be trimmed(his air waves) at two months. My son is now 7 and a half months and he is busy as an ant. He stands on his feet and makes sure that he balances with his right one too :-). I am grateful God chose me to be a guardian of such a wonderful soul. Black people in my country when they see kids with abs and other deformities they associate that with witchcraft but I know better, that my son is a beautiful gift ever.
thank you for this, it makes people like me know that I am not alone.
Sending love from South Africa.
