News about the newborns condition spread like wildfire in their village in Maharashtra, western India. Some were curious to see the baby while others ran away in fear. Some of the villagers refused to touch her out of fear of contracting whatever condition the innocent baby has.

Embarrassed by the villagers reactions, the 25-year-old mom abandoned her baby. Mamatas husband, Ajay, also 25, refused to accept the child.

Fortunately, the heavens are looking out for this special baby. Her paternal grandfather, 50-year-old Dilip Dode, cared for the infant despite her condition.

He could only afford to feed her goats milk, but he said hed do anything to save her.

He said, Its not her fault to have been born different and I will not throw her for her disease.

According to Mr. Dode, the couple was expecting to have a healthy child like their eldest daughter, 3-year-old Payal. They didnt expect their newborn to have such condition since everything was normal during Mamatas prenatal checkups.

Mr. Dode sought medical attention for his granddaughter in Wadia Hospital in Mumbai.

In fact, they were given free medical services and they have arranged a place in the premises for Mr. Dode to stay in.

The hospitals CEO, Minnie Bodhanwala said that the child is severely dehydrated.

She said that she requires immediate medical attention. Bodhanwala also suspects that the child has intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) and some form of chromosomal abnormality. However, the doctors are still waiting for the laboratory results to make an accurate diagnosis and start the appropriate treatment.

The childs medical expenses may reach up to 500,000 (Rupees) or 5,000; Wadia Hospital agreed to meet the cost.

They expect the baby to remain in the hospital for a long time.
