No arms, no legs, no problem: meet the 4-year-old HenryPictolic
In congenital defect of the limbs not usually develops only one pair of limbs, either upper or lower. Little Henry was the exception: the boy has no arms or legs. He was adopted by a family that raised seven children. The kid lives a full and rich life despite a disability. See how the love and care help him to be happy for the rest of our material.
Last year Rachel Flores, the social worker who adopted Henry, joined the charity group for children with congenital limb on Facebook. When the family adopted a baby with disabilities, everyone understood that it needs special attention and care. The foster parents wanted to know more about how to help develop the child without hands and feet. At their request said the Fund, Chive Charities, which largely helped the boy.
For the family of Florensov adoption of children — the purpose of life. Rachel and ray are raising seven children, three of whom are adopted. Children from two to 16 years. Surrounded by brothers and sisters Henry grows agile, smart and determined. The lack of arms and legs does not limit him in anything. The boy learns to swim and wants to ride a bike.
Henry four years, and he still did not wear dentures. To their approval and fabrication can take up to 8 months and during this time the child has grown. A pair of dentures costs about $ 25,000 (about 1.9 million), and baby needed two sets. Per year it is necessary to change two sets of dentures, that is, the family needs to pay 100,000 dollars (about 7.4 million) annually. Soon parents want to do for him silicone pads on the limbs.
Henry is trying very hard to be independent. Recently he was presented with a toy truck. The resourceful boy asked his father a power drill to assemble the car yourself. He uses a typewriter instead of a wheelchair, chasing through the rooms and the kitchen.Before the baby constantly needed help in the bathroom. Its height is only 60 cm, so the toilet and sink for him, as Everest. Gradually, Rachel started to notice that the son asks for help less and less. The mother saw that he rolls his truck into the bathroom and uses it as a stepping stone.
To Henry could freely travel around the house in a wheelchair, the family had to change the flooring. Volunteers helped to collect the required amount of $ 8,000 (about 590 000), and a new cover already installed.Charity Fund Chive Charities raises money to make a bathroom as comfortable as possible for Henry. Parents will be able to establish a children's toilet and a low sink below a boy can use the toilet completely independently. People have already sent $ 44,000 (about 3.3 million) to help the little hero.
Sometimes people with disabilities use their capacity much more efficiently than healthy. 34-year-old Eric Tambini lost hands and feet after two deadly diseases. However, the American was able to create a family, becoming a mother and successfully build a career.
