Babies born with deformities due to lifestyle changes of parents or some genetic disorder is common these days. But parents in some of the cases see these kids as an embarrassment to the family and find ways to abandon them. Such is the heart breaking story of Simon Sama from Thailand who was born with an abnormally large head.
Doctors operated his head and drained the excess fluid which later forced the skull to pull in and form a 2 inch cavity. As the child still requires treatment his parents abandoned him with his grandmother. Simon’s grandmother describes his life as that of a vegetable as he can’t crawl or make noise like other children his age.
At the same time, Simon’s head seems to grow larger day by day and doctors do not know if it is for good or worse. The cavity seems to be getting bigger as the baby waits for the next hospital appointment to decide the course of treatment.
