Parents Refuse To Abort ‘Deformed’ Baby When Doctors Ask – 2 Years Later, Just Look At Him Now

There are few periods in your life that can compare to the excitement of expecting a baby.Of course, at the same time, knowing you’re pregnant – or that your wife is – can also bring nerves and anxiety. What if something is wrong with the baby? What if there are complications when it comes to the birth? Obviously no one likes to consider these things, but, as they say, forewarned is forearmed.

So it was with one young couple expecting their son, who they planned to name Brody. At their 24-week ultrasound, the were informed of a complication. The doctor then asked them if they wanted to abort the baby or consider other options …

Sara Heller and her partner Chris were informed that Brody had a bilateral cl-eft lip and palate. The doctor told them that he would be born with this deformation, and that it could cause him issues with his health.

The doctor then proceeded to ask them if they wanted to keep him.

For Sara and Chris, it wasn’t a question at all. Of course they wanted to keep their baby! They didn’t care if he looked different, and were ready to provide the help he might need if he encountered problems with his health after being born.

What’s more, it was their aim to spread awareness of deformities and defects that can affect newborns.

“It is OK to be proud of your baby no matter the circumstances,” Sara said, as per HeartEternal.

“We wanted to change what ultrasound/newborn/first year pictures on our Facebook/Instagram accounts looked like. We wanted to spread awareness of cl-eft lips and palates.”

Of course, that’s not to say Brody’s condition didn’t require extra care. Cl-eft lips and palate can make it hard for a baby to eat, drink, smile, and sometimes even to breathe.

Sara received plenty of messages asking what was wrong with her baby’s face, but used them as the perfect way to educate others.

“I decided to educate rather than create a confrontation because that is what I want Brody to do in the future,” she said. “I will want him to educate, to be an advocate for younger cl-eft kids who don’t have their own voice yet.”

However, there have been instances of outstanding kindness that Sara has witnessed too. She told how a stranger in a restaurant handed her a folded piece of paper containing a check for $1,000. A note with it read, “for the beautiful baby.”

Sara and Chris put the money towards Brody’s medical expenses, and the su-rgery he needed to repair his lip.

Last year, the little boy underwent said su-rgery, and is now recovering well. Though he will likely have to undergo a few more sur-geries yet, he’s happy and content.

I don’t know about you, but I feel inspired by Sara and Chris, not to mention little Brody.
