How my daughter discovered confidence after an amputation

LayLay's Journey after amputation

My daughter's name is Malayah better known to family and friends as Lay. She was born with a shorten femur, which resulted in her left foot being amputated. She has had a prosthetic since the age of 2, she is now 6 years old. Lay didn't like wearing shorts dresses or anything that would show her leg. She used to question why she only has one leg and other kids have two. We had a rough patch, but we got over it. Now, she likes to go to the park, swim, wear nice dresses, and doesn't mind telling the other curious kids about her leg. Malayah is hoping to help other little boy's an girls with disabilities to have confidence
