Amniotic Band Sydrome = my fingers & toes

… and I wouldn’t trade them for anything in the world.

I was born with ABS, I’ve never really understood exactly what it was till now. Of course anyone can Google it and when I did I realized just how lucky I was that it only affected my fingers and toes. It truly is amazing how unique they are! (:

I’ve had several surgeries since I was 6 months old and each and every time I’ve learned to love my fingers and toes more and more. When I wish I had fingernails and could get acrylic nails like other girls my age, I remember that God made sure my ring finger was absolutely perfect for me on my wedding day in the future. When I struggle to find flip flops that fit my toes just right, I remember how lucky I am to have 2 feet to walk on.

You don’t have to feel bad for me. I don’t think God could have picked a better person to show off his unique creation. (: I could go into all the medical reasons why my fingers are the way they are but I don’t focus on that.. I concentrate on how grateful I am to have all that I do.

P.S. Did you know I can make a W with just 3 fingers? Lol.
