Default This may be one of the sadest things I've ever read.

Quote:
Little Sarah Morrison is so delicate she can never be hugged by her parents and she can break a bone just by sneezing.
Before she was even born, Sarah suffered 30 rib fractures and doctors said she would live just two days.
But the one-in-a-million baby, who has brittle-bone disease, will defy expectations when she celebrates her first birthday next month.


'Sarah is one of the most severely affected babies in the world,' said her father, Philip.
Sarah's mother, Sonia McCrossan, was told her baby had osteogenesis imperfecta while she was pregnant.
Her first baby, Leah, suffered from the same condition and died when she was two weeks old.
Ms McCrossan, 34, was advised to have an abortion when she became pregnant again.
But the couple were determined to give Sarah a chance at life and moved from Ireland to Sheffield to seek a bone specialist.
'She was good as dead in Ireland.
There are only three hospitals in the world which could help so we had to try,' added Mr Morrison, 31.
Sarah has broken two bones since coming home from the hospital. Her hips and back cannot be left unsupported for a second.
Ms McCrossan added: 'She has gone through so much in life but she still giggles when she sees us and is so loving.'
I couldn't imagine having a baby I couldn't hug and cuddle. That would be like THE hardest thing EVER for a parent. I'm normally a pretty callous POS, but that's really hit me hard.

on the other hand, why keep a child like that alive? Seems cruel to me. They were "Determined to give her a chance at life" - she'd have a better chance being reincarnated than living this life successfully.

I'm relatively inclined to concur. I would not want to live my entire life with such a condition, knowing full well that most of the normal activites involved in life would be forever out of my grasp. Imagine having to life your entire life like you were a walking China shop, mindful of every move and physical action you ever take.

Poor baby.

as bad as it might sound i agree. i feel for the parents, but possibly breaking bones with every movement you just can't have a regular life.

but in a cruel catch-22, it's not like you can just euthanize her... they have another term for that...

Sixty or seventy years ago, that's EXACTLY what would have happened.

My grandmother has told me stories about a black family that lived near to her as a child that drowned a "deformed" baby in the creek opposite her bedroom window. Her mother told her "it's for the best, don't you speak a word of it" when she asked about it.

Being a parent myself I know this must be tough but obviously this kid is suffering and a decision should be made.

I totally agree with you. I had to put my baby to sleep 5 months ago because everytime i saw her at the hospital she looked like she was suffering. I had to put my feelings aside and ask myself i must do what is best for her. It was the hardest decision I had ever made and will ever make. Keeping her alive was prolonging her suffering and it was killing me every night. She is resting in piece right now and I am thankful for that.

There is a quality of life thats gotta be a part of the decision people make. Who would want to be alive like that? not me personally.

Also, how can you expect to raise a child you can't touch? Human touch is such a part of raising a child, how can they be raised successfully.

<--pessimistic bitch

What selfish parents. They couldn't adopt a baby? They knew that they would have a baby with severe medical issues, and they persisted. Now that kid is going to live a terrible life, because its parents are idiots.

Osteogenesis Imperfecta


I was thought to have a form of it as a child. Broke a lot of bones growing up.

I think in your case, it was a lack of peripheral vision.
