Tinkabout it. I was born missing my two front legs. What's a girl to do?

A bad breeder lady dropped me off at a rescue lady's house and wanted me to go to "sleep" forever. Can you hardly believe that!

The nice rescue lady asked two people, who eventually became my moms, if they would take me for a few days until she could figure out "what to do with me." Well, within five hours of arriving at my moms' house, they decided I had found a new home. They said there was nothing wrong with me, I would need to navigate the world in a way that was different than others, but I would still be the same as others.

So my journey began. My Aunts, Sue and Sandy made my first set of wheels out of a toy baby stroller. Next, my grandpa and my mom made me a set of wheels. Finally, I met Uncle Adrian, who by the way is my hero! He works for Hanger Prosthetics and Orthotics in San Diego. Uncle Adrian has created many ways for me to get around. First, he created a device that fit around my body so that I could hop, and hop I did! Then he decided that I needed wheels. He has created about 5 different versions, all of which are better than the last. With my wheels, there is nowhere that I cannot go. If I want it, I get it, all on my own!

So TinkAbout it, if I can do it, so can you. You may need a little help, but help is ok, I got help and look at me! As you can imagine, I am very Tinkful for the people and things I have in my life.
