So my son, Leon is 2 months 21 days. He was born with a deformaty of the toe. He has half an extra big toe! All the women that seen him go goo goo over it. All the men thinks it's awesome and a litte weird. We are trying to get a refurral to get it x rayed and removed before he gets to walking stage and need shoes. Was your daughter/son born with deformaty? If so were and what kind?



The doctors think the way his toe is separated is because he kept putting his left heel between his right big toe and pointer toe. When we put it like that it lines up perfectly.

Arwen had trisomy 18 and was severely deformed and Izzy has a really deep acute sacral dimple.

My son was polydactyl. He was born with an extra thumb. We had it removed when he was 5 months old. It was a very simple procedure and I cried more than he did.

Good luck!

My son was born with an imperferate anus with a perineal fistula. Basically he was born without a butt and they had to surgically make one.

Mine weren't but this little boy I know is 4 and his thumb looks just like that.  The doctors don't want to separat. Everyone thinks his thumb is awesome as well and I swear that kid is one of the most beautiful kids I've ever seen in my life and he's SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Smart !! (( Not that either of those things have anything to do with it lol )) He's just such a cool kid

My six year old son Abel has situs inversus, which means that all of his organs are on the opposite side of where they would normally be, but it doesn't cause him any problems, he is completely normal healthwise. My five month old son Firo has a heart murmur, but it's not a serious thing, it will close on it's own according to the doctors. Ariadne has no deformities at all.

My children don't have any but I have a big dent in my ribs on one side. I knew someone that had an extra part off her thumb on one side.

I'm very lucky. The only thing wrong with my daughter is she has a belly button hernia which they say will shrink down and be normal before the age of five and if it's not they will go in and fix it.

Hugs to all the mothers and children who were born with or have problems.
