‘Humans of New York’ profiles selfless dad who refused abortion for special needs son

A Monday entry depicted a father and his fifth son, Ibrahim, who has an unspecified special needs condition. “I love him a little more because he needs it a little more,” he explained. Doctors recommended an abortion, which he “wouldn’t hear.”

“He was only three pounds when he was born. He needed half a liter of milk per day. I’d skip my own breakfast just to buy it for him,” the father recalls.

“I took him to nurseries when he was very young because I wanted him to be comfortable with other children.

The man is happy to give Ibrahim, who is his “whole world,” “anything that I have,” but fears for a future when he’s no longer there to do so.
