That's absolutely disgusting how all her family could just up and leave her behind This Woman should have been given the means and help she needs to raise her son.I cannot believe her mother and the fact she was denied access to stay It's just proof how much has yet still to change when it comes to seeing ppl as equal

I wish I was her neighbor, I'd help for free. I raised 14 children to adulthood, it's 2nd nature to me. It's a shame that New Zealand sees her as a burden and expense!
Jakhi Matthews
The fact that they would want her to terminate her baby 😭

The family chief is hot....oh yeah, and he seems so gentle too, which makes him more hot🤤

😔 I know this lady. I mean I don't know her we'll but we come from the same village in Samoa and this is my mom's village. I grew up on dads side so when I visit my grandma on moms side on school holiday I get to see her every Sunday at church. Never miss a Sunday 😊 I didn't even know this happened to her 😔 the best thing about her she never let peoples negativity bring her down shes always smiling 😊

So touching , God wouldnt start anything if he knew you couldnt finsh it..........i pray that the lord will guide you in your situation and that your son will grow up all healthy and that he will know from his mind and heart that you are his biological mother Amen

If she can't live in New Zealand then she should apply to come here to America. I know there are so many people here in Tulsa Oklahoma that would take turns helping her to care for him. The easiest would be to contact the area churches. Especially the bigger ones. They don't call Tulsa the Bible belt for nothing. You don't even have to be the same religion. The people here would help and do help regardless. There is a church/center called Tulsa Dream Center I would try asking them which churches or organizations could help. They help in so many different ways at the dream center that I'm sure they'd know who to ask. And if not then try another. Another probably easier way would be to set up a go fund me page to help her keep her baby with her. It could be used to pay someone to help her care for him until he no longer needs it. And also to help her with the things she has to do. So she can spend more time with him. I wish I could help out. But I'm on a fixed income. Good Luck.

Having severe disabilities, I can't imagine getting pregnant, carrying a baby in my stomach for nine months, and raising children, honestly. Like, without a team and support behind me, I can't see how that would even be possible.

is the chief family of the rock or maybe the baby's father....btw he is good-looking

She's so memorized and in love with her baby, she's a good mother and person ❤ I hope her son grows up and knows she loved him enough to give him a better life.

I love the Chiefs counsel
Kelebohile Mganga
my mother is disabled too and at some point, she had to make a decision whether she raise me or she gives me to my grandmother to raise me. I was a very big baby and it was hard for her to take care of me but she decided to raise me. I'm grateful that she did because I don't think I would have been able to relate to her had she decided to allow my grandmother to raise me. honestly, i would have been ashamed of her in the first place, I remember growing up other kids used to tease me that my mother is dissabled and I had to grow a thick skin and accept that she is my mother and she is the way she is.
Rona Jackson
a baby knows their mother before birth !!!
Akshita Thakur
Such a courageous woman👍 Much love and respect to her😊😊❤
Tryphaena Sirila
such a sad story & a very beautiful baby & mother xox God bless you Luisa & your family xox
Kat A.
That a government would ask a person to terminate their unborn baby in the case that it be born with brittle bones is horrendous and an absolute violation of Louisa's right as an expectant mother - I JUST CAN'T!!!!
Tu'i Faioa
She's an examples of what a strong and beautiful Polynesian women, ofa atu: )
Happy Peacock
Pisses me off that the man who knocked her up will not help
susan warner
What a hand you have been dealt. I hope all the very difficult decisions you are challenged with work out in favour of a satisfactory and happy outcome for you all. God bless.
Sade Gemmell
Honestly if I had the money I'd move and help
Gina Primeau
My heart wrenches for her. It was a miracle her pregnancy went extremely well and her son is a miracle. She's not in an enviable position and I feel so sad. She clearly loves her son very much and is a good mother and she's proving that even more by having her son go to new Zealand and be adopted by her family and he will have a better quality of life. Its still so sad because of the mother's disability she can not care for her son alone and she can not find work because of the prejudices against disabled people so she can't even get a job to financially support her son and get a nanny so he can stay with her. And the fact there's no father in the picture is disgusting to me. Any male that makes a baby with any woman and then refuses to be a part of their child's life is not a man. Such a heart wrenching situation. I pray for them.
Nikki Moore
Don't worry what others say you are a strong and beautiful woman

Plot twist the family chief is the father 😂
anna Last
The father should come forward to support this baby & marry this woman. He should be there for her to help raise this baby.
tukana eroni
I RESPECT YOU MY SISTER...DISABILITY IT NOT A CURSE...IT JUST TO SHOW OTHERS THAT GOD CREATE EVERY HUMAN BEING AND YOU ARE IN THIS WORLD FOR A PURPOSE BUT NOT TO BE JUDGE BY OTHERS
Karnashia Perry
She's so adorable 😍❗️ what a beautiful woman❤️❗️
Mrs Maddox
Her mom is SELFISH!! They all should send her $ to help her out...that’s what families overseas do when u come from a 3rd world country. You help the ones u left behind. Poor luisa😭. She’s just a sweet woman

I thought that dog laying down was a bear lol
koko unknown
Cann everyone shut up abbout the chief I know hes hot asf and would love to eat him up.but we need to be focusing on the fact that a baby has been separated from the mother.
treasurz1
I might be hated here but I don't agree with going to another country to get help, she did get help, but then she wanted to live there too. That's not another countries job. It's your job and your countries job
Rokaiya Shobahan
What a strong and lovely lady
MENCADO
The personal challenges that she has do NOT necessarily mean that she is "disabled", except insofar as that she may be TREATED AS BEING SO according to the willingness or lack thereof of others to allow her to do things at her own pace, in her own way , and according to how she specifically is able to do those things.
RampantArtist
i hope her mother gets explosive diarrhea that ruins her life to pau for the cruel treatment of her own daughter. In this region family is everything... and she would take this from her own child. Shame on her. They can raise money to fund their cruelty but not to fight for that poor woman to be allowed to remain in NZ to raise her son who was born there. Sure. Smells like bs. And... is this 2016 or 1612?? They were going to forcibly terminate the pregnancy if the child was disabled??? F me... that is one sick place. I know the place is poor but forced abortion isn't right i anyone's view. I feel so bad for this poor woman... her own family are miserable human beings... abandoning her then taking her son. this story is the saddest one... poor louisa,
J3000
Such a wonderful & courageous human being...just wondering tho where the father is...he and his family could've helped raise their son
good boy
God bless you sister ❤️
Queen of fairies

She received a blessing, who will help her forever.
Lily Rose Crichton
You are a miracle from God, people question why is she got that disability, yeah!! because the bible said, is to show God power on her and her beautiful baby. May God keep you healthy and safe.
MAINE AHSIN
Man .. such a sad story. I pray for her that God comforts her. May her son b raised knowing who his real mother is. Thats the least her family can do FOR HER. Its not her fault shes disabled & not physically capable of looking after her baby. Disabled people are miracles. Babies are blessings. Everything would b alright if she just got some permanant help to care for her baby. I feel sorry for this mother.
Shore Eli
honestly (since im samoan) samoans can be very judgemental and critical so the fact that she endures inspires me sooo much, god bless her
Diane Watson
This is painful.
angelina B
mmm the family chief is cute af
Liliana Benitez
This is so sad, I was Louisa to keep her baby 😭 I hope the best for her and her family...I know you can't have everything but her baby needs her love and Louisa loves him so much she is willing to give her child to her mom so he can have a better life. That is love 💜. Sl beautiful. May God bless you Louisa and help you be with your family.
