Hundreds of Facebook members across the country have united to show support for triplet mom, Abbie Dorn. In less than a week of forming, the Facebook group “Stand Up for Abbie Dorn” has more than 1000 members. These members have united for a common wish: for Abbie to know and see her triplets. These members want Abbie to get a fantastic belated Mother’s Day gift: to visit and interact with her triplets.
Just four years ago, Abbie was a pretty, successful chiropractor living in Los Angeles. She and her husband, Dan Dorn, were thrilled to become pregnant with triplets. Unfortunately, during her labor, the doctor accidentally nicked her uterus, leaving to heavy bleeding. She lost so much blood that she became brain damaged and paralyzed. She is now severely disabled and cannot care for herself.
Even more tragically than the horrible crisis she endured, her husband Dan, chose to divorce her a year after the birth injury. And, sadly, he is refusing to allow Abbie to know and interact with her triplets.
