broken bones

‘We were led to Samuel’s crib. I immediately I broke down. His left leg was rested backwards, up by his ear.’: Mom births baby with Brittle Bone Disease, ‘He is our little hero!’

“I should have been holding Samuel, comforting him and memorizing every sweet feature. Instead, the nurses whispered amongst themselves. My heart sank. His skull shape and heart were ‘off.’ She went on to tell us he had 2 broken femurs and a fractured skull. We were  stunned. It was a mother’s worst nightmare. I gazed down at him and gently embraced him for everything he embodied. He was our medical miracle.”
