There are cases when people abandon their babies who can be a burden for some reason. More mothers who can’t afford the expensive treatment tend to sign them off for adoption. There are those who abandon their children due to various pathologies. But there are parents who fight for their little ones to no end.
Nekhidia Harris, or, as her relatives call her, Nikki, was born with multiple developmental defects, the most severe of which is brittle bones. Doctors were sure that the girl would not survive more than a few days. The parents were even advised to abandon the seriously ill child. It was believed that she was doomed to suffer all her life. Doctors doubted that she would be able to walk on her own and hold such things as a spoon or a pencil in her tiny hands. But the Harrises did not give up. To everyone's surprise, not only did Nikki walk on her own, but also turned out to be a very intelligent child.
