Imagine being the parent of a sick child and having the police show up at your door, claiming your child is being abused.
You would immediately start asking who was accused of abusing your little one and probably be extremely angry.
But what would happen if you found out that the person being accused was you?
That’s what Ethan and Kirsten McQueen were up against when local authorities approached them while they were out in public.
Their baby, Katarina suffers from a rare autoimmune disorder called Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura, or ITP.
What it means is that Katarina’s body is unable to clot blood, which causes bleeding and bruising.
Considering she is just nine months old and learning to walk, she falls down often and even the slightest bump is dangerous to Katarina.
