I will conquer the world with ONE hand.
Karl Akl born on November 26 in Lebanon, Beirut with his left hand missing due to ABS. We (Karl parents) did not know about his missing hand during the 9 months of pregnancy.
On the day he was born at 9:35am Karl’s dad was holding the camera and taking a video when he noticed the hand but didn’t show any surprise in order not to inform Karl’s mom directly. Doctor and nurses were all surprised and were afraid how to tell the mom.
When they decided to inform her soon after he was born, of course she was surprised and was extremely sad but when she asked to hold Karl, he was like an angel full of Joy and holding his missing hand and kissing it as if he was assuring her that he will be a strong boy without his left hand and that he likes it this way.
Karl is an energetic boy with full of joy and happiness and he is giving joy and positive vibes to all his family and friends. He is known as the most sociable baby who smiles for everyone.
We will make sure he will not need his left hand during his life journey and that he will achieve great work without it.
