Whatever happens…

They had been desperately longing for a child for so long. Then, when Ahmed and Juda finally came into this world, the happiness of the parents couldn’t have been bigger.

However, soon after the birth of the twins, the second born son was diagnosed with a severe genetic abnormality. The desperate parents took their son to the Caritas Baby Hospital, although they had known, that his chances of survival were slim. Other doctors had given up on him immediately after birth. ‘Even though my son is still so tiny, he signified that he wanted to live before he died, and only the doctors in the Caritas Baby Hospital responded to that’, the mother said. The seriously ill baby received conscientious medical treatment. Juda kept on fighting and regained some strength, so that he could even spend a few days at home. That was a beautiful week full of happiness for the family with no tubes or infusions in sight. ‘I am eternally and endlessly grateful, that the social workers and medical staff have made it possible for us to enjoy these precious moments with both our twins. We will cherish them forever in our hearts, whatever happens...’

Juda has been admitted to the Caritas Baby Hospital again today…
