People Asked Her Why She Didn’t Abort Her Baby, This Beautiful Video Explains It All

Lacey Buchanan

Lacey Buchanan was 23-years-old when she got the amazing new that she was pregnant. She and her husband of 2 years could not have been more excited. And that excitement only continued when they were told it was a boy!

But 19 weeks into her pregnancy, doctors discovered something heartbreaking. There was something wrong with their baby, and no one could figure out what. On February 18, 2011, Lacey traveled to Vanderbilt to  give birth… not knowing whether or not they’d come back with a child.

Christian, their sweet baby, came out screaming, but there were many things that were abnormal. The couple was devastated. Having no idea how to raise a child with such disabilities, life would immediately become harder.

Watch the video below to find out the extent of Christian’s disabilities, the family’s trials and tribulations, and finally how Lacey’s new perspective is inspiring hundreds of thousands of people!
