My Heroine Of The Week/Beulah Chigbu

I came across Beulah's story a few months ago, and yesterday when I saw her picture on my friends dp I had to probe further. Beulah turned 4 yesterday, I was to put up this post yesterday but I was so tired after my numerous activities, which I will gist y'all another day, so its coming today a day later and still as wonderful as well.

Question: why should a 4 years old girl be my heroine?

Answer: a lot. I don't even know where to begin but I will start from somewhere. .

Beulah who was born on the 20th of May, in Nigeria was diagnosed with Tibial hemimelia of the right leg, which is a congenital absence of the tibia and in her case absence of the patella (Knee cap) in lay man's English she was born without a knee cap and the big bone between the knee and ankle, as a result of this, her leg had to be amputated. By the time she was 2 years old her leg was amputated. Her mother describes how she felt when she was given the news www.bellanaija.com/2013/03/28/bn-our-stories-our-miracles. You can also find pictures of Beulah on the link as well, since the internet I am using has refused to upload my pictures.. 

What strikes me about this little girl is her confidence, she is the most confident little girl I have ever come across and I will say thanks to her parents who have done a fantastic job. She is not shy, or afraid, she is ready to conquer the world, nothing is stopping her. I also like to say that her father is a wonderful father. from the time she was 3 months her father would talk to her, tell her how pretty and wonderful she was, and all the sweet magical words that fathers can say to their daughters which builds their confidence and make them grow into great beautiful strong women. 

From my little research I know that a good relationship with daddy creates a fantastic marriage, relationship. Trust me no man can tell a little girl, who sees her father as her hero, lies, you can't mess with her, you can't deceive her. Thumbs up to her father 


When I put up her picture on my dp, a friend of mine asked me about her and I narrated the story one things she said was: "Mehn see her confident smile and people that have two legs will be there complaining", this got me thinking. I need to stop complaining and thank God for everything I have no matter how little. 

I am in love with people who see beyond their disabilities and live a wonderful fulfilled life.
