Doctors Find Defect On Baby’s Face During Ultrasound, Then Tell Mom They’ve Never Seen It Before

It’s frightening to think that there are some medical issues that doctors still don’t understand, or ones that they can’t cure: from cancer and the newfound Zika virus, to some things that are less heard of.

Another is a rare craniofacial anomaly that a mom in Oregon was told her baby had after a sonogram. This reminded me so much of Madison’s story of vascular malformation being found in her mom’s sonogram.

The doctors in Oregon didn’t know much about this facial defect. They couldn’t tell the parents, Alicia and Matt, whether or not their baby was going to be born and be OK, or struggle, or even make it at all.

What does a parent think when a doctor tells them something like this, something not only devastating but confusing too?

With no answers in Oregon, they were in shock, but they were not going to give up.

After searching all over, they found one doctor who could help them, all the way across the country in Boston.

The Boston Children’s Hospital has given this family answers and treated their daughter as a real human instead of just a chart.

Now their little Violet is blooming beautifully! I think the smile on her face says it all. Her journey is on the Children’s Hospital’s site for anyone to follow! There are some other blogs you can check out too, about Violet thriving, her next chapter, and even catching her at home!

Please SHARE this beautiful little girl’s journey to happiness thanks to her loving parents!
