Hello Asian mother and thanks for posting.
Sorry to hear about your situation. Know that with proper access to medical care and medication that your child can live well and to adulthood. This doesn't mean that it's easy, or to minimize the emotional and social challenges that you'll face, but should give you hope for your child's future.
