One Dad’s Choice To Keep His Son With Down Syndrome — No Matter What

Samuel Forrest says he was given a choice: Abandon his newborn son, or get a divorce.

It all started soon after Forrest’s son, Leo, was born in Armenia on Jan. 21. When the pediatrician came out with the bundled baby, she had his face covered up, Forrest recounted to ABC News. Doctors soon told Forrest his son had Down syndrome. In Armenia, hospitals let parents decide whether they want to keep babies born with the condition.

Sizemore said the Ministry of Justice in Armenia has made great strides in streamlining the adoption process for prospective families abroad.

Forrest was not immediately available when contacted by HuffPost.
