Baby abandoned by parents because of her wrinkly skin saved by grandfather

Published on

A female infant was abandoned by her parents in Western India. The infant, who was born at seven months and weighed less than two pounds, was rescued by her grandfather. According to reports, the infant’s parents rejected her when they saw her wrinkly skin.
The infant’s grandfather, Dilip Dode, informed reporters that word of the infant’s wrinkly appearance spread throughout their village.

He also stated that the infant’s parents were embarrassed by their daughter. The infant’s parents were unwilling to provide sustenance, prompting Grandpa Dilip to assume responsibility for her care. He administered milk via a spoon for a period of two weeks before transporting her to a medical facility. As of the most recent update, the infant, who had not yet been named, was undergoing recuperation at the hospital, accompanied by her grandfather. Her parents continued to refrain from visiting her.

Medical professionals have posited that the infant’s wrinkled appearance may be attributed to intrauterine growth retardation and chromosomal abnormalities. However, Dilip does not perceive these conditions as a justification for rejecting his granddaughter or allowing her to perish.

I will try to convince her parents to accept her, but if they still refuse, I will raise her up myself. It is not her fault to have born different, and I will not throw her [away] for this disease…It is really disheartening that even her parents have rejected her, but I will go to any extent to save her.

Wadia Hospital in Mumbai has agreed to bear the financial responsibility for the treatment of the infant girl and to provide lodging for her grandfather. The initial report of this incident was published in June, but no subsequent updates could be located.
