This is Baby Gammy
He is a six month old baby boy with Down’s Syndrome and a congenital heart disease. He is one of a pair of twins born to a surrogate Thai mother from an Australian couple. His biological parents only took his healthy sister, and left him behind, abandoned.
His Thai surrogate mother had decided to keep the twins despite being instructed to abort them when tests showed that Gammy had Down’s. She chose to save their lives. Now, along with two of her other children, Gammy and his Thai mother continue to live in poverty and they have no money to pay for the heart and lung treatments he desperately needs to stay alive.
His story broke my heart a million times over. I was torn between rage, helplessness, sorrow and the need to find this boy, hug him, kiss him and shield him from all the injustice and pain he has had to suffer in the mere six months he has been alive. I look at my sleeping little Sophie Rose, so blessed and so beloved to us and I want to bless this child in turn, he who needs it so much more!
Because we cannot get onto the next flight to Thailand, our family donated to Hope for Baby Gammy on Go Fund Me. The money goes to an Australian charity which works in Thailand and will be administered solely for his medical treatment and living expenses.
Help Baby Gammy – he may have biological parents who are monsters but he is a beautiful, innocent baby who deserves love, happiness and acceptance.
