Wife Leaves Husband For Keeping Their Newborn With Down Syndrome

Samuel Forrest’s life changed on Jan. 21, 2015 when he heard his son Leo first cry. However, before he was even able to hold his son for the first time, Forrest received the unexpected news that his son had Down Syndrome. While Forrest still believed his son to be “perfect,” he said that his Armenian wife didn’t share the same sentiment. Forrest said he was given the ultimatum that she would divorce him if he kept the child. On his GoFundMepage he writes that she refused to touch little Leo, ‘for fear of getting attached in a society where defects are not accepted, often bringing shame on the family involved.’ Forrest lives in Armenia but is originally from New Zealand and now wants to return there with his son
