According to ABC News, Samuel Forrest of Armenia was waiting outside of his wife’s hospital room as she was giving birth when he first heard his newborn son’s cries.

“This pediatrician walks out of the room with a little bundle — that was Leo,” Forrest said. “She had his face covered up and hospital authorities wouldn’t let me see him or my wife. When the doctor came out, he said ‘there’s a real problem with your son.’

Forrest was told that Leo was diagnosed with Down syndrome. Despite initial shock, Forrest was not deterred from loving his son.

When Forrest walked back into his wife’s hospital room, Leo in his arms, his wife gave him an ultimatum: if he chose to keep the baby, she would divorce him.
