How badly do you want a child? Would you conceive even if you were aware that it would make your life miserable? Or it would prove to be a danger to you and the baby? What if you knew that your baby could suffer from a debilitating genetic disease that didn't have any cure?
Being mom can be one of the greatest gifts in the world and people love the experience. Here's a story of this amazing mom who decided to give birth against all odds.
The couple has 3 kids despite the dangers of passing on a rare genetic disorder.
She holds a record for being the smallest mom.
She suffers from a rare disorder known as Osteogenesis Imperfecta. The doctors have warned her during each of her pregnancies that she could end up transmitting the disorder to her baby or her lungs and other organs couldn't handle the birth-giving process.
She wasn't sure if the baby would be healthy, but she decided to take a chance anyway.
Kateri was born only at 28 weeks and also suffered from the genetic disorder. The second pregnancy was much worse on her and her daughter, Makaya ended up getting the same disease.
The 3rd child, Malachi was suffering from severe medical issues after his birth but somehow the doctors managed to save him. The couple calls them 'miracle babies'.
After all problems, she's got her 3rd child.
