Story about Adams-Oliver syndrome .

My little boy❤️

Dec 6, 2018

Year Condition Began: 2014

My name is Angelina and I have a beautiful little boy who was born with Adams Oliver Syndrome. Where do I I begin with our story! I’m 2013 I found out I was expecting my first child. When I was 18 weeks pregnant I went in for a normal doctors appointment and we did an ultra sound and that’s when I found out my son didn’t have his left arm. They then sent me out to a high risk doctor to do a full ultrasound on my son. At that appointment I was told that I should have an abortion because it wouldn’t be fair to bring a child into this world born like that I was floored that they would even say that to me. Fast forward to 35 weeks pregnant they did another full body ultrasound and I was then told my son was Down syndrome, missing a left kidney, his cerebellum was to small and he would be paralyzed and also that he was missing his left arm. With the doctor thinking that my son had all of this he told me that when he was born he would die. I then delivered at 40 weeks and 3 days to a beautiful healthy 6 pound 12 oz baby boy missing his left arm. When my son was 6 months old I found out he had Adams Oliver Syndrome so my son is missing his whole left arm has webbed toes and also has a heart on the back of his head where he is missing a little bit of his skull.
