How do I refer to it?
When I first meet someone they never really know what to think of my arm. They may be curious but most do not quite know what to say or how to refer to the subject that they may actually be curious about. Here is how I refer to my arm... As a child I had a huge problem and felt as if some words were quite rude, such as nub, stub, and anything like that. Everyone refers to their arm as something different. I grew up calling it my little arm. For some it is a cute arm, a stumpy, their little fin. When you approach someone with a missing limb I recommend asking them what they would prefer you to call it. I can remember multiple times when people would call it a nub and it truly offended me, I disliked that word greatly. Now a days I do not care as much because I know most are not familiar with the subject. Although, those words can be considered rude or hurtful to others so just ask:)

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."
