When Ja’bari Gray was born Jan. 1 weighing 3 pounds, his mother and father were like any other expectant parents, ready to count all the fingers and toes and kiss on the cuddle their new bundle of joy. But Jabari was born with no skin, except on his head and legs. His mother and father, Priscilla Maldonado Gray and Marvin Gray said the pregnancy was progressing normally until 37 weeks. Doctors noticed the baby wasn’t gaining weight and other issues and decided on an emergency cesarean section, Maldonado Gray revealed on a GoFundMe page.

Missing that crucial barrier between his body and the world, the 3-month-old’s mother has been unable to properly hug, snuggle or kiss him.
