SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCBD)— When you have a child, you may want to share your joy with the world.

When Mariah Anderson was born, doctors told her family that she would constantly be fighting for her life.

Now, her family says they are battling Internet trolls who have targeted Mariah’s pictures.

The 2-year-old was born with Chromosome Two Duplication Syndrome, which stunts her learning ability and motor skills.

The little girl is not expected to live long, so her family wanted to celebrate Mariah’s second birthday.

Her mother, Kyra Pringle, posted a photo on Facebook of the special day.

However, the picture was shared thousands of times, but not because of Mariah’s smile.

Facebook users began poking fun at Mariah’s appearance, even making a meme out of her photo.

“The things you guys are saying about my child, she’s not a monster, she’s real,” said Pringle.

“If you’re out there and you’re doing these things, and you think that it’s funny, it’s not funny,” said Linda Pringle, Mariah’s grandmother, “This is actually a human being, this is a child, this is a baby.”
