I'm here to help. My happy, funny, athletic kid is now 16 and thrives physically and athletically with only one hand. It has not alway been so cheery and the hurdles this kid has lept over have been quite painful at times. But, he knows without a doubt that he was created for a purpose and he cheerfully looks forward now to the adventure God has planned for him. He plays varsity football as a catching tight-end, plays basketball as a forward and post player, pitches and plays 1st base in baseball. He, We, have dealt with the "hand" we've been given and have turned it in to a blessing. I could write a book, and maybe should someday, but if any of your children need to know what they are capable of and how to get from the "anxiety" stage of disabilty to the "wow" stage, just let me know. In the meantime, treat your child like every other child. Let them figure it out. I promise, they will amaze you!
