I gave birth to my son Urijah on November 16, 2012. We had no idea that he was going to be born with ABS. We never even heard of it before this day. Urijah is missing all four fingers on his left hand. He has just little numbs where his fingers should be.
When I found out I had no idea how to feel. I felt as if I had done something wrong during my pregnancy. I wasn’t sure how difficult his life would be with just 6 fingers.
But today he is almost one year old and his little hand is just as strong as his big hand. He picks up a lot of things with his little hand. He even helped me color a picture with his left hand, this made me so happy to know he will be able to almost everything anyone else can.
