Baby Whose Parents Broke 40 of Her Bones Has Been Adopted

Baby Faith who was abused by her biological parents so badly that they had broken 40 of her bones by time they were caught, has been adopted.  Faith Mason had suffered such grave injuries that it was said her injuries were equivalent to falling off a two story building.  That was in 2013 and little Baby Faith has still not recovered from all of her injuries.  She has been living with her adoptive family for the past six months.

 

Faith is still recovering from her horrific abuse injuries, but authorities say she has already improved much more than anticipated.

During a court hearing last year, prosecutors said Faith was still being fed through a feeding tube and her left arm had still not healed properly in the three years since the abuse was uncovered.

Faith was taken to a hospital in Southwest Texas back in 2013 by her mother Christine Johnson.

An emergency room nurse who was on duty when Faith was brought in called the abuse the worst case she had ever seen, the Port Arthur News reported.  

Doctors found she had suffered at least 40 broken bones and fractures, including two broken arms, two broken legs, a broken neck and dislocated shoulder.

When the baby was brought to the hospital, they had to place an IV drip in her neck and request a specialized medical team from a children’s hospital in Houston.  Her parents,  Christine Johnson and Darrell Mason, were both arrested for child abuse.  During the trial Johnson was convicted of abuse and was sentenced to 65 years.  Mason pleaded guilty to not stopping Johnson from abusing the child and was sentenced to 25 years.
