Doctors said Ja’bari is one of only three known aplasia cutis cases in the United States, Maldonado said.
The infant is on life support and is expected to pass away.
"Now it came down to where they just want us to go ahead and disconnect him when we feel comfortable, because he's in too much pain and suffering right now. I just want my baby to be home and be normal and be able to hold your baby," said Maldonado.
Maldonado and the rest of Ja'bari's family have started a GoFundMe fundraiser to raise money for the infant's medical and funeral expenses. It can be found here.
