Her Baby Was Born With A Rare Condition, But Mother Makes The Best Out Of It.

A Mother's Love is one of the most powerful things in this world. It can completely make someone's life and it has a great impact on the life of a child. This is all the more for a child when it's born with a condition that requires special attention and care. Eli Thompson was born with a rare condition known as congenital arhinia. Arhinia is a very rare condition in which a baby is born without a nose or with a highly underdeveloped nose. Due to this under development, there is also no nasal cavity, paranasal sinuses, and olfactory system laid out.

People with arhinia are therefore not able to smell and taste, but the biggest problem is the disorder with breathing. Especially in infants, it may be a problem that it isn't possible to breathe through the nose. For that reason, most children born with arhinia will get shortly after birth a tracheotomy to facilitate breathing.

Doctors estimate the probability that a child will be born with arhinia less than 1 in 200 million. The condition is therefore extremely rare.

Furthermore, Eli is a very healthy boy and his mother is going to give him all the love, care and attention he deserves. She now has contact with a parent who also has a child with this condition.
