One of the most exciting moments for a new mom is when she learns the sex of her new baby. Whether her hopes are confirmed or she is surprised by the news, she can begin dreaming of the future, decorating the nursery, and buying a thousand cute little outfits.
Like any other mom, Katie Whiddon anxiously awaited her 18-week ultrasound, and she hoped that her baby was a girl. When the ultrasound technician left the room in a hurry, Whiddon thought, “Maybe she just couldn’t see the sex of the baby.”
The tech came back into the room with the doctor, but Whiddon was in denial that something could be wrong with the baby. She was still convinced that they simply could not see the sex of the baby.
Whiddon learned that she was having a son and that her son had no legs and only upper arms. She considered many possibilities such as intellectual disability, but she never expected to learn that her child would never walk, ride a bike, or be able to hold hands.
Not wanting her son to live a life of suffering, she scheduled an abortion. However, she kept praying for peace, and all she could do was cry.
After talking to her mom and sister about her situation, she knew that she had to keep her baby. She later learned that many others had been praying for her that night.
From that point forward, she knew things would be hard, especially being a single mom. Thankfully, her family was very supportive and encouraged her to move home so they could help her while she went to college.
Fast-forward three years, and her son Camden is doing incredibly well. A video of Camden and his little brother went viral with 64,000 likes on Facebook.
In the video, Camden is able to calm down his baby brother by putting a pacifier in his mouth. Whiddon is proud of how far her son has come and that he is able to take care of his two siblings.
“I know that most people look at Camden and think, poor child. But when he gets comfortable in his surroundings and starts doing things on his own, everyone always gathers around to watch!” she wrote.
“Don’t underestimate someone just because of the cover they were born in,” she said. Katie Whiddon is so grateful that she chose to give her son life, and now he amazes her every day!
