disabledLive Action profiled a video that has become viral about a young mother who chose life even though she was told he would be severely disabled.

Christian, the baby whom the video is about, was born with a disorder that only 1 in 50 people in the world have, and unfortunately, his case was much worse than his parents and doctors thought he would be. Most shocking of all his disabilities was that his eyes did not actually form, and so Christian is blind.

People would stare at Christian whenever he and his young mother went out and public. They would even whisper aloud, wondering what was wrong with that baby. One girl even expressed outrage that Christian wasn’t aborted in utero.

As difficult as it was to raise a disabled baby and deal with people talking about her son, this young mother took pride in her baby, and eventually others did as well.

Here’s the video, it’s a must watch.

God has a purpose and a plan for Christian. Christian has also been "fearfully and wonderfully made," (Psalm 139:15). God doesn’t make mistakes. Yet many babies are aborted every year due to being diagnosed with a disability while they were in the womb.  Steve Ertelt at LifeNews.com notes:

Abortion frequently targets disabled children, including those who have Down Syndrome. As many as 95 percent of unborn children diagnosed with Down syndrome in this country are aborted. But according to a recent survey conducted by Children’s Hospital in Boston and reported by MSNBC, 99 percent of adults with the disorder say they are “happy with their lives,” and almost as many say they like who they are and how they look.

It may seem like a difficult choice, but as Christian’s mom discovered it is the right choice.
