Samuel Forrest’s wife Ruzan Badalyan recently gave birth to a son. But instead of the beautiful moment it should’ve been for the couple, it turned into a nightmare when Ruzan discovered her son had Down Syndrome. Afraid he would shame her family, she abandoned the child.
Samuel refused to give up his son, so Ruzan gave him the agonizing decision between his wife and his son. He chose his son, and was handed divorce papers a week later. He has since turned to crowd-funding so that he can raise his son in his native New Zealand. In less than 24 hours, his page had already earned over $335,000.
