All babies are beautiful and unique no matter what form they come in. Some really standout amongst others because of the conditions they come with, but no matter what happens they deserve to be loved and adored.
Some parents sadly do not accept the fate of their kids, some immediately give them up for adoption while others disown them.
Some of these kids are born with down syndrome and some parents on finding out the fate of their child, becomes judgemental. This was the fate of a Russian father, after his Son, Misha was born with down Syndrome.
As per reports, 33-year-old Evgeny Anisimov is raising his son Misha singlehandedly after his wife left because he didn’t want to be recognised with a child with down syndrome.
He is on a mission to show the world that children with Down syndrome are every bit as worthy of love and acceptance.
After 1 minute and 39 seconds after having their son, the doctor told them that , “I fear that your baby has Down Syndrome” Speaking of bored panda, the dad said: “I didn’t know what to do when I learned of the hypothesis that my son had Down Syndrome.
I thought my task now was to turn off emotions, ignite thoughts, support my wife because I believed it would be more difficult for her. “The results of the analysis we were promised in a few days, and until then, I decided not to say anything to her.”
He continued: “I remember that upon learning that my son has Down Syndrome, I left the hospital and cried, but not for long.
Later, I was a little embarrassed by these tears. In my life, after all, nothing had changed, in general.
“I was still with two arms, with two legs, my professional knowledge had gone nowhere. My determination, activity, curiosity, and so on—everything was with me. Everything happened as I planned, my son was born.
But the child is special, his life and future destiny are already very significant. And I’m roaring here! This is some kind of selfishness! Is it not fair? No, it is my responsibility.
You did not have an amniocentesis—it is clear that the probability was low, but still. You wanted a child, so you took responsibility for it. After all, there are many options: autism, cerebral palsy, genetic mutations … And Down Syndrome is not the worst, as I learned later.”
“I learned that in Europe, people with Down Syndrome are well-socialized, can live and work independently,” he said. “But the decision I had already made was not influenced by that.”
He never nurtured the thought of leaving his son, but his wife didn’t think the same and left. “At no time did I think of leaving my son in an orphanage, that would be inhumane,” he said. He and his wife eventually separated, and now Evengy raises Misha alone.
Evegny plans to raise awareness on down Syndrome and hoping that every parent can get to love their children born with down syndrome. He told Bored Panda: “I want all the articles about Mishka and me that are being published now to convey that idea to society and instill it.
And I also want to support, inspire with my example those people who are or will be in the same situation as me. I try to communicate with those who are within reach, I correspond with those who are far away.
I hope that those who have difficulties now, as it was for us, read about us. Have no fear! Everything will be fine!” Evegny should be praised for not giving up on their son. Misha will be so proud to have a father like him.
