Meet the beautiful Lady who uses her hands to walk and her husband to be

ThThere are many of us in this world with unique traits, characteristics, physiques and many other things. There are some parts of the body that some people do not have but that does not make them less human like we are. We have seen cases of some people who were born with no limbs at all while some people were born with limbs but they had to amputate them due to some reasons. It has become a bad habit to always think less of these special people. They may look different from us but that does not make them lesser than us; they are human beings too. These people also want to be shown love; they want to live their lives without any stigma. They want a family just like every other person. In this article, I will show you one of the special persons in this world and how she has been able to live with her stigma all these years.

HerHer name is Piyah Martell and she is 28 years old. She hails from Sacramento in California. As you can see, she has no limbs at all. She was born that way and the scientific name of her condition is ‘Sacral agenesis’. Sacral Agenesis is a type of illness that affects the lower vertebrate and causes the limbs and the spine not to develop when the baby is in the womb. 

Piyah Martell has a half body unlike everyone else and she has been living with the societal pressure for a while now. It is so lucid from these pictures that Piyah does not have any artificial legs and she does not use crutches. So, she practically uses her two hands to walk. In some occasions, she also uses skateboard to move about.

Despite the fact that she is not like every other person, she met a man who loves her irrespective of her condition, 6 years ago. She has struggled for a long time before she found someone who loves her. 

She has really been through a lot in her life. Her real struggle began when she lost her mother at the age of 7 years. She says she faced lots of challenges going to school and when she gets to the school, people will start bullying her for being different.

AAs for her husband to be, Andrew says that people criticize him every day for hanging out with Piyah but he never cares because he sincerely loves Piyah. He says that Piyah is a sweet girl and she is nice to be with.
