Her nine-year-old son Timmy was also born without arms as well, so Linda passed her special skills and teachings on to him. Thanks to this, and Timmy’s determination, he now regularly swims, plays video games, takes martial arts classes, and plays the guitar. Linda said that her son is “just like any other kid.”
A mother and son born without arms is a challenge for any family, but Linda said her husband Rich has been incredibly supportive, fully embracing her condition. The two married in 2004.
Linda plans to become a speaker for people with similar disabilities, to help them have fulfilling and happy lives.
