As parents, of course we want our children to be born perfect and healthy. Even so, we also cannot control the decisions that have been outlined by God. It was also experienced and also felt by a baby boy who came from Hunan, China. The baby is given something special, which is a congenital disorder called polydactyly.
The baby, named Hong-Hong, came from Hunan Province, especially the Pingjiang region. Baby Hong-Hong, who was born in January, is known to be born with an unusual number of fingers, the baby has a total of 31 fingers and toes. From the total number of fingers, baby Hong has 15 fingers, and toes totaling 16 fingers. Uniquely, Baby Hong does not have a thumb like babies or humans in general.
The doctor who handled his birth said that Hong’s condition was unique and unusual, it was called polydactylism. Polydactylism itself is a congenital condition that often occurs in animals, namely dogs or cats because they have more unusual fingers or toes.
However, in terms of conditions, what was experienced by baby Hong was known to appear quite often and also happened. Of the approximately 1000 live births that occurred, one case of polydactylism was found in an infant. This data was obtained from a children’s health center in Atlanta, United States.
This condition experienced by Baby Hong is also a condition that was passed on by her mother. The mother has the same problem, namely having a greater number of fingers and toes than the normal number, namely 6 fingers and 6 toes on her feet. Concerns about having children with the same condition also often include the feelings of the parents of Baby Hong when they are pregnant. In the end, their worries were confirmed after Baby Hong was born.
Until now this condition is not known what the exact cause behind it, but heredity and gene mutation are supporting factors that can make conditions like that experienced by Hong babies occur. Moreover, the conditions experienced by Baby Hong cannot be predicted in the pre-natal conditions, namely three months of gestation. However, it is not recommended for baby Hong to perform surgery on his condition in the early years, this is done so that the child can adapt to the condition he is experiencing now.
It was during this time that Hong-Hong’s parents used it to raise funds which would later be used as operating funds for Hong. The amount of funds needed by Hong and also his parents is very large, ranging from 200,000 yuan or 408 million rupiah. With such a large number, Hong’s parents themselves tried to raise funds via the internet. With the actions they have taken on the internet, they are now able to raise quite a large amount of money.
Even though the funds generated from online online were quite large, various negative comments also came quite a lot. With that reason, his father stopped raising funds online and then decided to return to their hometown, Shnezen, to then be able to work and raise money.
