Anyone who has kids will understand that life is rarely easy.
Parenting is a full-time job that demands commitment, devotion, and more sleepless nights than I care to count. However, the difficulty may be worse for certain parents than most can ever understand.
Sheree Psaila, 22, finds taking care of her son even more difficult than usual because she can’t even carry him up physically.
“Sometimes he’ll cry, and I can’t reach him to pick him up,” Sheree told the Daily Mail. “I have to wait for someone to pick him up.”
Why is that? Because of a rare genetic disorder, Sheree lacks muscle in her arms and legs.
Sheree Psaila has lived her entire life going against what people expect of her.
She was born with arthrogryposis multiplex congenital (AMC), an extremely rare illness that results in the absence of muscular tissue in the arms and legs.
As you can expect, her entire life has been an uphill struggle; initially, not even her medical professionals had confidence in her. Sheree’s parents were informed that she was unlikely to live to see her first birthday.
Doctors informed Sheree that she would probably have to live in a wheelchair after 20 unsuccessful procedures. But Sheree wasn’t going to let anyone else decide her fate.
She was determined not to let bullies stop her from living her life to the fullest at the age of five.
Sheree met Chris, her future husband, while she was a student. He also has a hereditary condition affecting his spine’s lower section.
After Sheree and Chris’ March 2015 wedding, they were keen to try for their own family.
Sheree’s first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage, which is unfortunate. However, the pair gave it another shot after processing their enormous sadness.
Although they didn’t justify, the physicians informed me that I most likely wouldn’t be able to have children, Sheree told the Daily Mail.
A miracle transpires
Sheree’s physicians believed it would take a miracle for her to carry and deliver a baby because she is just 122 cm (four feet) tall.
As usual, all the skeptics would soon be forced to retract their statements.
Sheree gave birth to a child via c-section after moving to Melbourne with Chris.
Given the circumstances, it’s good that little Hayden was born weighing 5 1/2 pounds (2.5 kg).
He also has no hereditary illnesses or disabilities, which Chris and Sheree had both been worried about.
Everyone acknowledges that Hayden is a miracle, and after Sheree’s long journey, Sheree deserves nothing less.
Sheree and Chris face more difficulties than most parents, but they have demonstrated how love can conquer all by working together.
Sheree finds it difficult to raise Hayden since she lacks the necessary muscles.
Fortunately, she has a caretaker who comes to help five days a week. But Chris is the one who carries the most weight.
Sheree says, “I want to be able to hold him in the pool and do all the things that Chris does with him when we go swimming.
Despite the daily hardship, Sheree adores being the mother of her joyful, healthy boy.
Despite always having limitations, Sheree continues pursuing her education and fulfilling her goal.
