Valérie, a 23-year-old woman, had a very ordinary pregnancy.
It was only during the delivery that the young mother realized from the doctors’ reaction that something was wrong with her baby.
“After giving birth, I lost consciousness. The doctors were more shocked than me. They said the child had no fingers, so I told my husband about it.
Despite this, I did not feel unhappy,” the young woman told StarHit.
The newborn was diagnosed with Apert syndrome, a genetic condition characterized by abnormal development of the skull and hands.
After hearing the diagnosis, Valerie did not give up and she and her husband decided to do everything possible so that their child could survive and be treated.
“Generally, this syndrome can be revealed during pregnancy.
But I know a lot of stories where Apert syndrome was not discovered during pregnancy until birth,” said Valérie.
In front of a one-year-old baby, there are several operations. But the spouses think they can handle anything.
We’ve already done surgeries on the head and on the left fingers. For these operations, the parents of the baby raised funds.
Valérie says that you have to accept your child as he is, then the others will accept him too. No need to hide it from the world, you have to let it adapt to society.
Being the mother of a special baby is the hardest job, the main thing is not to stop fighting.
The young mother is still supported by her loving and caring husband and relatives.
