So, I got married, and we got pregnant. My pregnancy was fantastic, I didn’t even know I was pregnant, found out I was pregnant, still wasn’t sure I was pregnant because I didn’t have any symptoms.”
“After the “smooth” pregnancy and an even smoother delivery that happened “under 45 minutes”, her baby was checked abroad and she was told he is OK.
“Everything was so smooth. And then fast forward to four months after my son was born and the doctor was like ‘his eyes are not following’ and I was like, ‘What do you mean he’s not following?’ “And then suddenly, as a mother, your heart just starts palpitating.”
Several tests were conducted in Nigeria and Abroad which confirmed that their son was truly blind.
However, the young boy whose name is David, is swiftly growing to be like his father as he now plays the piano excellently at the age of seven.
