The first thing one realizes when you cross the border into Mexico is that you are not just in another country, but rather a completely different world.

On March 24th, 1986 a baby boy was born in Suwanee, Georgia. However he wasn’t like the other kids born that day. This baby had a condition known as congenital amputation, which, according to Wikipedia is a congenital disorder that can be caused by fibrous bands of the amnion that constrict foetal limbs to such an extent, that they fall off due to missing blood supply.

My son Cameron was born on February 19, 2002. At just 36 weeks, he was a full month early. When he was born, he didn’t come out crying like a normal infant. Instead, he came out quiet and blue. He needed oxygen held in front of his face while my wife held him. Despite the oxygen and his mother’s arms, he was still not crying. It was obvious something was wrong.

As a result, she suffers from a variety of ailments including respiratory distress, diabetes, blindness and epileptic seizures.
