Mom Confesses She Finds It's Hard To Love Her "Ugly" Child

Growing up, my mother and I would sometimes butt heads about little things, Often, it was for staying out too late or hanging out with people who I was too blind to see weren't really my friends. But even though we didn't always see eye to eye, I always knew that she had my best interest at heart and was just trying to protect me.

Watching her taught me that being a parent means loving your children unconditionally, in spite of their flaws.

But clearly, this mom missed that memo.

In the latest WTF news, she posted a message on Reddit, asking for help because she has a daughter who is "physically unattractive" and "honestly looks like she has some sort of disability".


If your mouth is open from all the crazy, you may want to sit down because there's more. Instead of just stopping there, she stresses how hard it is for her and her husband to love their daughter in spite of her "ugly" looks. Here is what she wrote:

"As our daughter matures, and believe me, I hate myself for saying this, please don’t lambast me, it just is a logical fact, she’s very physically unattractive. She got the worst traits of both my husband and I. His wide set eyes and strong nose, most of his facial bone structure, actually, my stocky build and curly hair, her skin tone is pretty much right between mine and his.

"But our daughter, though physically normal, honestly looks like she has some sort of disability. So much so we had her tested. She doesn’t. One doctor, who was filling in for our regular doctor when DD fell and her arm, when explaining to us how to help her wear a splint for what was, thankfully, just a moderate sprain, said, ‘When a child has Down’s syndrome….’

"I feel beyond awful that I feel this way. But, because she is such a wonderful person inside, it hurts me the more that her peers won’t see past her physical appearance. And, may god strike me dead for saying this, I’d almost rather she DID have a disability or chromosomal disorder. Then there would be an explanation for the way she looks other than just 'bad genetic luck'."

If this is a contest for the worst mother ever, I think we can all agree that she wins by a landslide. I wonder what kind of person you have to be for you to actively wish that your child has a disability.

How she can honestly sleep at night, I'll never know.
