Mom Tries to Kill Cursed Baby by Drinking Poison2 Yrs Later, You Wont Recognize Her Face


She was ashamed of her baby and left her in a pile of garbage…

28-year-old Sarah Conque felt a unique calling upon her life to care for the children in Haiti while she was in grad school.

In 2013, the Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist made the bold decision to move from Louisiana to Haiti to serve at a pediatric medical center there.

Sarah saw many tough cases come through the doors of that medical center, but none could compare to the baby girl that she met in January of 2014: Nika.

Nikas mom came in to get the baby treated for a brain condition she had that caused excess fluid to accumulate in her head. Though the 3-month-old was in dire need of intense medical care, her mother was more worried about the shame it caused her to be seen with this disabled baby.

If Nika was ever taken out in public, her mom would be sure to keep her hidden under blankets so nobody would see her enlarged head. In Haiti, children with disabilities are often deemed cursed, so sadly, this is not an uncommon practice. Sarah discovered later that the mom was a prostitute and had even attempted drinking poison so that she could kill her baby in the womb.

It soon became quite clear that Nika wasnt in such poor condition because of her brain disease, but rather because of the neglect of a mother who never wanted her in the first place. In August 2014, Sarah had a terrible gut feeling that something was wrong with Nika, and she needed to go check on her immediately.

She rushed to her house and was mortified to find the baby left alone in the house surrounded by a pile of trash. Sarah convinced her mother to give her to an orphanage family so she could get proper care. She decided to take the 11-month-old under her own wing to assure she was taken care of appropriately, getting all the love and affection she deserved.

99% of babies in Nikas condition die before they are one, and doctors told Sarah all she could do is pray for a miracle.

Well, Miracle upon miracle, she continued to survive, wrote Sarah.

After 6 months of being her caretaker, Sarah decided to become Nikas permanent legal guardian, and the toddlers health has continued to progress by leaps and bounds every day.
