Re: WFT?! Is it an alien?

Wil- the site rules require that you indicate whether any links you post are Work and Family Safe (WFS).

I don't know what to say about that video.

I can't remove it. I didn't know what WFS stands for and I didn't know about that. I am terribly sorry. Please forgive me.

That child likely has a rare abnormality called harlequin baby syndrome. Google it for more information.

Re: WFT?! Is it an alien?

It is either a baby that has an unfortunate abnormality or the whole video could be a trick made by some bored people.

maybe someone can understand and translate whats going on.

I think there is no life on this topic. Its akward and has no potential.

Re: WFT?! Is it an alien?

Sorry guys. I didn't know about the WFS. I have seen it around the board but am dumbfound of the acronym. Any way sorry for any convinences again.

Dave you are right. It is a harlequin baby syndrome. I did some research on it. I can't believe the baby in this vid wasn't even scratched. Wow I'm glad I learn something about this. Very interesting.

Re: WFT?! Is it an alien?

This one's pretty inspirational, a baby born with harlequin syndrome managed to survive and competes in triathlons now:

Wow! Thank you so much Bonny for sharing this. I was wishing to find if any one who was born with harlquin syndrome lived longer than a week. Ryan is really remarkable young man. I feel bad for calling the baby alien at first. I really thought it was an alien from the title of the video. Like my rotc commander say stereotype is common but no one really takes the time to look at ones character. I'm glad I took the time to look into that. Ryan's character is out of this world. His mom is the best. Even she never gave up on her son.
