Osteogenesis imperfecta is a genetic bone disorder. Around 50,000 Americans suffer the disorder and only a small percentage of women is able to give birth and note violate her and her baby’s life. The children have 50 % chance not to inherit the disease.

Eloysa Vasquez who is just 3 feet tall and weights 37 pounds was determined to go on with her pregnancy at the age of 38. She had a big support from her husband Roy.

The doctors were skeptic, thinking that the baby wouldn’t fit and that a mother to be could experience heart and breathing problems. However, the baby was growing inside the womb and the womb protruded beneath the ribs and above the pelvic bone, allowing the fetus to grow.

Eloysa gave birth to a healthy baby boy on January 24 with a help of Caesarean section. The baby is doing well and was lucky enough not to inherit his mother’s disease.

Unfortunately, not all parents and babies are that lucky. An example of a couple Melissa and Ken Davert of Flint proves it. Melissa suffers from osteogenesis imperfecta and stands just 2 feet, 10 inches tall. She gave birth to two children who both inherited the disease. At the age of 7, they weigh 20 pounds each and are just over 2 feet tall.
