"Hailey (@haileys_hand) was born in 2010 with a hand with a small palm, small thumb, small pinky, and missing 3 middle fingers. It looked like the hang loose or "shaka" sign from Hawaii. While in the hospital, the photographer came by to take Hailey's newborn photos and this was the defining moment for me, as her Mom. It was her first official photo and I did something that made me feel guilty. I covered her hand for the photo. I felt so guilty about it. After that day, I told myself that I would never cover her hand ever again and that we would raise her to never be ashamed of her hand, to be proud, and to be independent. We never looked back from that day on. A week later we found out that Hailey has Poland Syndrome and that there wasn't anything I could've done to have caused it. It wasn't hereditary and it just happened. She is missing her pectoral muscle on her right side as well as the limb difference in her hand.

For the first few years of her life, Hailey, adapted and did what every other kid could do. We taught her to try before she asked for help. We taught her to be proud of who she is and it amazed us as she explained what she had to other kids. Hailey got her first "Flexy Hand 2" in 2014. It was absolutely amazing. She threw out the first pitch for the UNLV Rebel baseball team in 2015. That grew into a bigger dream for Hailey since her big brother plays baseball and our family loved the Baltimore Orioles. She asked to throw out the first pitch for the Orioles. That dream came to fruition in 2015. She has no fear. She goes through her day tackling every task and challenge that comes her way. Our little Hailey inspires us every day. This year she wants to dance Hula. This year, she's hoping to throw out a first pitch for another major league team. She loves doing it. Most people would be nervous to walk in front of thousands of baseball fans but not our little girl, she loves it." #yoocandoanything #yoocan #unlv #unlvengineering #robotichand #luckyfin #luckyfinproject #3d #3dprinting #polandsyndrome #haileyshand #flexyhand2 #inspiration #motivation #limbdifference

We take little things in life for granted, like having 5 fingers. Seeing his reaction to his new hand and new fingers for the first time brought me to tears. He seriously teaches me something new every day. I am SO LUCKY to be this boy's mama! @lucky_fin_project #LuckyFin #amnioticbandsyndrome #boymom

{May 25th, 2017} - DISCLAIMER: Super Emo/Sappy/Annoying/Proud Mommy post (walk away if it's not your jam): Its been 5 1/2 years and to be honest most of the time we don't even notice or remember that she's different. It's become part of our norm and truth be told there's so little she can't do on her own that we rarely (if ever) treat her any different than we did Jacob at her age....bt every once in a while she leaves me breathless! Every once in a while I catch her doing little things that she's taught herself like using a fork and knife - which I always imagined would be a challenge for her - with such determination, innovation and ease that I'm stunned silent and am forced to remember that she is different; and as crazy as she drives me, she's just so darn INCREDIBLE! Incredible in how easily she figures it all out, in how independent she is refusing our help with almost everything, in how she carries herself with pride and not shame and in never feeling sorry for herself....I am so undeserving of this beautiful bundle of amazingness that is her, bt I am determined to take a page out of her page and be the incredible mom she deserves! #photoaday #ovaphotoaday2017 #teamova #sophiaova #sophiathegreat #incredible #supergirl #proudmom #emomorning #limbdifference #differentisbeautiful #luckyarm #luckyfin #thelittlethings #thesimplethings #babyimamazedbyyou #defsmademecry #crybabymama #howdshelearnthat #shecanandshewill

Assalaamu'alaikum

Hai... Pemilik keistimewaan, kamu pasti pernah berfikir untuk menyembunyikan keistimewaanmu. Karena malu, karena minder, karena dan karena lainnya. Gak apa kok, itu hal yg wajar, saya dulu juga begitu 😰
Tapi cobalah menjadi dirimu sendiri, jangan ragu2 untuk meraih bahagiamu. 😍😊 #tetapbersyukur #janganlupabahagia #janganlupatersenyum #luckyfin

Do you know that April is Limb Difference Awareness month? I bet you don't. To be frankly I didnt even know about this ilness till my baby was born with it. Here is Luka in age of 7 months (now he is 42 months). In this photo he wasn't aware of his difference but now he definitely is! Moreover he is brave enough to share his support with children and adults worldwide! He is our the most powerful inspiration. We love you, son! Ten fingers are overrated✌ @lucky_fin_project #luckyfin #limbdifference #limbdifferenceawareness

#luckyfinsrock #luckyfinproject #luckyfin sometimes you need to turn your little arm into a sucker machine gun..lol. I don't know how he comes up with this stuff.

When you darty so long you lose track of time, but you just keep swimming #luckyfin

Someone got her prosthetic finally delivered... aaannnd she hates it 😬 We did it at a young age bc I wanted her to be able to learn with and without it, when she's older she can make up her mind how she is comfortable #eviehelene #luckyfin #luckyfinsrock

It took him a few tries but he was so proud one he figured out how to climb the bounce house without any help so that he could go down the slide. And once he got it, there was no stopping him!

DAY 37: Slowly seeing the numbers creep up, I'm now yet to see a session where I don't reach a new max for post elbow training. Getting under 42kg with no pain was quite exciting, definitely the most I've been able to get OH in a long time...got scared on the 45kg 😬
