My thoughts on Prosthetics
I got my first prosthetic at five months old, to help me crawl and to give me the opportunity to choose if I wanted one when I was older. This way I grew up putting on my prosthetic just like I put on my shoes. I continued to get new prosthetic up to the age of 10. I rarely ever wore them except for dance recitals and gymnastics. The older I get the more I personally do not like the idea of them. I have nothing against them, if it helps you that is wonderful. Personally I found that it was more of a hassle than a help. I believe that God has created me with one arm for a reason and a purpose so why would I try to change that? I would never change having one arm, if someone offered me to have two hands for a day, even a second, I would kindly decline. I do not want to have two hands, I don't want to wear a heavy prosthetic on my arm all day so that people will not stare at me. I am proud of who I am and if people stare that is a good thing, it is an opportunity for others to see that we all have differences and that is what makes the world go around. No one is perfect. Yes, prothestics have many positives, but my view is that if I was created this way there is a reason and purpose for it, God has a plan and I should show my little arm to the world and not be afraid to show it, not have a prosthetic covering it up so I can look "normal". This is why I have chosen not to wear a prosthetic.

I really think that prosthetics are cool and people who have disabilities should not be ashamed to use them. You are beautiful with or without them. I am proud that you are willing to become a stronger person than you once were by using them. It will help you much more physically, but I know you are already stronger emotionally and mentally. Just keep on doing the things that make you happy and don't mind what others think. Your disability is never a disability, once you keep in mind that you are strong for who you are and always remember the people that love you.

Well known for her love for Jesus, coffee, and having one arm. Sarah share's stories in her life in hope to help others. She wants you to know that,
"Our differences do not define who we are but are a part of the story that God has written for our lives."
Sarah says, " I hope that I can be someone to relate to in a world of untold real stories. Everything I write is from my heart and real."
"We are all created imperfectly perfect by God, we should be proud of our imperfections and differences, they make us who we are today but do not define us, know that you are beautiful and remind yourself of this everyday."
