At three months gestation Shelly Wall and her husband Rob learned the devastating news no parent wants to hear. Doctors told them their preborn baby boy Noah had several health problems including spina bifida, chromosome abnormalities, and hydrocephalus. They said Noah only had 2% of his brain tissue and would likely die at or before birth. The couple was advised to abort their son.
Four years later, Noah is doing remarkably well and has been featured in a new U.K. documentary.
“We were offered termination five times,” Rob Wall said in the documentary, “The Boy Without a Brain.” “It was never an option for us. To me, we wanted to give Noah that chance of life.”
