Why then, did one grandmother from South America not feel the same way about her grandson? The story begins in a maternity clinic in Santa Marta, Colombia. Recently, a baby boy was born there.
Most grandparents would be overcome with pride at the news of a safe arrival in the family. The baby would then be coo-ed over, and everyone would tell the parents that their little one is beautiful. Even if, in reality, it’s a bit wrinkly and purple, as newborns often are.
But one unnamed grandmother took serious offense when she first met her grandson. In fact, she believed that he was not aesthetically pleasing at all. And instead of biting her tongue, this granny couldn’t keep her thoughts secret.
