The Making of My Special Hand: Madison’s Story

Book Cover The Making of My Special Hand

Experience the curiosity and eager anticipation of Madison, a small girl born without her left hand, as she tells her story of being fitted for her “special” hand. Her helper hand, a prosthesis, will allow Madison to easily pick up toys, throw a ball, and carry her doll.

This enlightening story offers a rare look at the making and fitting of a prosthesis, or in Madison’s case, a helper hand. It also explains in a relaxed and informal narrative how the medical team from the Children’s Amputee Program worked with Madison and her family.

Madison’s story shows us the excitement and promise in one little girl’s world, reminding us that nothing is impossible if we have a willing spirit and an enjoyment of life.
