I just met this amazing young boy here on wordpress. I wanted to share his story with all of you but I could not find the reblog feature on his wp page. Here is the link, http://donattig.wordpress.com/boy-of-hope/#comment-2345
I was born with Phocomelia which means I don’t have much in the way of limbs. I have a little stump (I call it an arm) for my right arm and I have a little left leg that doesn’t have a femur only a shin bone. I have two toes on that foot.
I am very clever on computer and I love playing games instead of schoolwork. I have a game called CLAW which is a sidesscrolling game and it has 14 levels but I am only up to level 3 at the minute.
I speak English very good and write it too, by holding a pen or pencil in my teeth and mouth. Mummy is typing this as I tell her what to write because she wont let me go on her laptop – I have to use my own, which is her old one.
I have to go now and I am hoping that I can come to the UK soon as it’s been 2 months since we asked for a passport and the third time altogether. I hope I get my passport.Please pray that I get it soon so that I can go to school and learn some new things in that good country and so can I tell the people there all about the wonderful country I was born in and am from. It has many beautiful places, wonderful animals and friendly people. I hope we can all become good friends and visit each other and learn about each others culture.
Thank you from Tony
