Good for her. It will be interesting to see when she is older if she has an artificial arm fitted.

People like Bethany Hamilton, Nick Vujicic, and Joni Eareckson Tada are inspiring. They don't let physical shortcomings stop them, and they have strong faith in God despite not being "complete," physically. Some people might hold a grudge against God if they lost an arm, or were paralyzed for the rest of their life, or were born without arms or legs. But the above-mentioned three individuals are testimonies of trusting in God no matter what.

Great. My 'PuppetHead' blog gets multiple spam comments daily (there are so many I can't keep up with them), and now this blog gets a spam comment. Ah, well, one or two is not so bad.
