Doctors were stunned when Ja’bari Gray, the son of Pricilla Maldonado Gray and Marvin Gray, entered the world without the majority of his skin.
Gray gave birth on January 1st thinking that her baby was going to be perfectly healthy, but he weighed a mere three pounds and was missing skin everywhere but his head and legs.
