Nurses wouldn't let new mom see baby after birth video - Kids Activities Blog
A baby is a blessing.

Some are born with conditions that make their lives more difficult, but the bond between a baby and his mama starts long before birth, and it doesn’t matter what that baby looks like, or what issues they might have, mom will love them.

But when Lacey Buchanan gave birth to her son, Christian, his appearance left nurses fearful for how his mom would react.

Lacey and Chris Buchanan were overjoyed to find out they were pregnant shortly after marriage, but that joy was put on hold when during the 18-week scan doctors informed Lacey that her baby had little chance of survival.

Undaunted, the couple named their son Christian and awaited his birth with prayers and baited breath.

But when Christian was born, nurses immediately took him away, afraid of how the new mom would react to her son’s appearance.

Christian was born with a cleft palate so severe that only about 50 other people in the entire world have his same medical issues.

He was born without eyes, with a mouth that would not close, his nose was isolated from the rest of his face, and portions of his skull were visible. And to Lacey, he was perfect in every single way.

After far too many stares, and strangers criticizing the Buchanan’s online, Lacey created a video to show the entire world just how loved and incredibly special her little boy is.

Take a look!

  1. Christian is blessed to have beautiful parents and his Mummy & Daddy are blessed to have a beautiful boy like him. All children are a blessing from God yet our Lord choose you both to be his mummy and daddy. Shame on people who giggle and think it would have been better to abort him, don’t they know that not all children are born slim, tall, handsome, pretty, super brainy or into a loving home. Regardless of all that he is beautiful, for all the right reasons. What also touched me is the look of pure unadulterated love and pride on his mummy’s face. May the Lord bless you all with years of happiness together. xx

  2. I’m so glad that Christian’s parents gave him life and I’m friends with his mother on Facebook, Christian is a very sweet and loving little boy. This little guy has been going through challenges before he was born but he was born a fighter, he doesn’t let anything get in his way. He stole my heart from the first picture of him, I enjoy seeing pictures of him and his little brother. Keep making people wonder sweetie!
