Bisjawit, the father of the baby boy with a rare genetic condition called “progeria”, did not feel sorry or unhappy about their baby. But instead, the parents still felt grateful and blessed for having a new baby boy in their house.
According to the doctor of the infant, those babies who have a progeria can only live up until the age of 13. From 4 million babies, only 1 can experience this kind of rare condition.
“The baby does not look like a newborn at all,” explained the doctor treating the infant, who was born in Bangladesh, as reported by Daily Mail. “There are prominent signs of aging such as excessive wrinkles and rough skin texture.”
But despite the baby’s condition, Bisjawit declared his love to the baby and explained that every blessing from God should be loved accepted.
“We can only thank God,” said the father, farmer Bisjawit. “There is no need to be unhappy about the appearance of my son. We will accept him the way he is.”
Aside from feeling grateful for the coming of his son, he also said that the baby boy has a resemblance to his features.
“Our first child, Aparna, has taken after her mother,” he said. “But my boy looks like me, and I am happy.”
The story of Bisjawit is such an inspiration to many. Regardless of the risky condition of his new son, they still find a way to lighten up their difficult situation. And instead of losing his hope, faith, and love to our God, they still felt happy and blessed for having his son.
“We are so happy to have a baby boy in the house,” Biswajit added.
“We are already blessed to have a daughter. Now we are a family of four. What else can we ask for.”
“He is an angel and even though he doesn’t look like the rest of us, he has a purpose, he is special, if he were my baby, I would fight to the ends of the earth for him,” wrote one Facebook user.
