THE LITTLE BOY’S HISTOLOGY
Kain Munroe, Munroe’s child, was born in Born to his biological parents in October 2016 on a Native American Reservation in Montana. The little boy was just five months old when he had an accident that sent him to the emergency room.
Doctors discovered that the boy was bleeding from both his brain and his eyes. This could have been due to abuse by his parents.
The child’s condition was so serious that he had to be flown to Salt Lake City Children’s Hospital. He underwent critical surgery and was eventually stabilized.
After he recovered, Kain was placed in the custody of his aunt, her children, and her boyfriend. The child’s situation would only get worse.
He was subjected to more abuse, and eventually, Kain’s nine-year-old cousin could not stand it anymore and spoke up.
KAIN’S JOURNEY – RECOVERY
After enduring abuse at the hands of those supposed to care for him, little Kain received help and was placed in foster care at ten months.
Kain was adopted by Munroe’s husband a month later. The couple loved and cared so much for their adopted son, even when people spoke poorly of his skin. Not long after, the family started attending doctor’s appointments.
They visited Denver Children’s hospital, where Kain underwent various tests. The little boy was found to be way behind his peers after a series of examinations at the Non-accidental Brain Injuries Care Clinic.
“We were told he may not walk, probably wouldn’t be able to talk, and would probably have to be spoon-fed for the rest of his life,” Munroe Explained.
It was a heartbreaking time for the couple. They refused to give up, regardless of their diagnosis. Munroe began speech therapy and physical therapy with her husband, as well as occupational therapy for Kain.
Additionally, the family had to visit the hospital three times a month for monitoring. The family was initially not happy with the experience. To make matters worse, Kain had a weak immune system and often fell sick, but his parents were determined to give him the best.
They persevered with their therapy and treatments, and eventually they were successful. At 14 months, Kain began to crawl; at 15 months, he started saying little words; at 16 months, he could walk, and he could put words together at two years.
The couple was elated to see their son succeed despite the predictions of the doctors. Today, Kain is five years old and goes to school. Munroe states that he has not been severely delayed in any way.
While she and her husband remain concerned about his future and the effects of his childhood abuse on the long-term, they are not worried. They are optimistic that Kain will do great things.
