The thought of separating from her little daughter broke Christina’s heart into a million pieces, but that seemed like the best thing for the little girl who was about to be welcomed into the world.
Having a child is the dream of every parent. But life is often unfair and many families face difficulties.
Christina Fishet from Florida became pregnant at the age of 36. Even though she really wanted to have a child, she couldn’t take care of it at the moment because she didn’t have a home or a job.
As a result, she decided to give her baby up for adoption. Just the idea of separating her little girl from herself broke her heart into a million pieces, but it was the best thing she could do for her baby.
But what Cristina did not know was that her little daughter Abigail had a rare disease and the echoes had not shown this when she was in the womb. When the adoptive parents saw the baby, they refused to take it.
Abigail was diagnosed with Treacher-Collins syndrome which is a genetic disorder characterized by deformities of the ears, eyes, cheekbones, and chin. It can also cause problems with the respiratory system.
This condition did not make Abigail less beautiful than the other children who were in the maternity ward. For Christina, Abigail was the most beautiful girl they had ever seen.
But the adoptive family didn’t feel the same as Christina. They were very supportive and friendly while Christina was pregnant, but once Abigail was born, they disappeared from her life. “She came out crying… and left the hospital. We never heard from them again,” Christina said of the adoptive mother.
Christina realized that she would raise her little girl alone. No one would love her more than her and would always be by her side.
Her photos stole the hearts of many people when Christina posted them online and wanted to spread the message that everyone is beautiful in their own way.
The little girl’s story spread around and people really wanted to help Christina give her baby a good start in life so they donated around $20,000 through her GoFundMe page.
It looks like the saying, ‘it takes a village to raise a child’ was true in the case of this mother and daughter who are about to embark on the adventure called life together. Abigail’s condition was just a sign that she should spend her life by her mommy’s side.
