It almost seemed as though fate was working against Aminah Hart. The mother dealt with a seemingly insurmountable amount of heartache. Her first son Marlon passed away at 4 months. Then her second son, Louis, passed away at 14 months. The cause was a rare genetic condition and worst of all Aminah knew that she was the cause of it — her two sons each had different fathers. Neither of her relationships could survive the loss of a child.
“You can’t really put it into words. I had two relationships and two children but it wasn’t until the second one that I got a diagnosis of the genetic disorder,” Aminah told Dailymail.
When Aminah turned 42 she was single and childless. She had always imagined herself with kids. The grieving mother had to make a difficult decision. Knowing that there would be a 1 in 4 chance that her child would be born with the same condition, that they might also die, would she try to have another baby?
