Aid To Women, a crisis pregnancy centre in Toronto, has been assisting a mom who is expecting twins next month.
Recently she found out, that one of the babies (a boy) has Spina Bifida. This is a birth defect in which the spinal cord has not developed properly. According to the doctors this little unborn child's condition is severe. He is probably paralyzed from the waist down and will need a shunt because of hydrocephali (water on the brain).
The Mother cannot face this challenge and is booked to have a selective abortion of the spina bifida child in a few weeks.
Aid to Women feels that if they can offer this mom a promise that a family will adopt the handicapped child she will carry him to term.
Aid to Women is appealing to the pro-life community to offer a home and heart for the child.
For more information from a mom who did adopt a Spina Bifida baby, who is now a grown man, please call Joanne at 905-309-3340.
To enquire about possibly adopting the child call Aid To Women at 416-921-6016.
