She was young and healthy and happy and she had everything. In a matter of seconds she lost almost everything, in a horrible accident she was a victim of, and that her then 2.5 yo son had to witness.
She barely survived. She lost a leg. She fought. She is still fighting. But she’s here.
Turning her life around with the help of her husband, family and friends.
She is the epitome of strength, a model and an inspiration. And I love her❤️
She is Stela. Every step of the way.
@stepsbystela hats off to you!

Weekly Spotlight: Shaquem Griffin
Shaquem Griffin is a NFL linebacker for the Seattle Seahawks. Shaquem was born with amniotic band syndrome which affected his left hand; this caused his fingers in his left hand to not fully develop. The pain was so significant, that at just 4 years old Shaquems parents found him in the kitchen trying to amputate his left hand with a butcher knife. His parents scheduled for an amputation the following day.
Even though Shaquem no longer had his left hand, he continued playing sports such as track, baseball, and football throughout high school. He and his twin brother, Shaquill, both received a football scholarship to the University of Central Florida for college where they both went on to play.
In 2018, Shaquem was invited to be a part of the 2018 NFL draft and was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in the fifth round. He is currently playing for the Seattle Seahawks alongside his brother. #ability #disability #ilrc #disabilitystrong #seattle #disabilityrights #humanrights #seahawks #strength #disabledandproud #civilrights #amputee
If this doesn’t motivate you or maybe even shed a tear I’m not sure anything will. Thank you @ashley.finger for sharing!
People always ask me why I don’t wear a prosthetic hand and I believe everyone has different reasons why they do or don’t. Since my accident it has been an absolute process to find peace and love with my body image now missing a limb. But to me, this is who I am. When I wear a prosthetic hand I feel like I am covering up the most important part of my body. My accident flipped my entire world upside down and changed everything I thought I knew about life and about myself. But it was the biggest blessing disguised in my greatest challenge. Today, I wouldn’t change a thing, I wouldn’t change my body or the mental and physical challenges I conquer on a daily basis. On a physical abilities note being 21, active and healthy I currently do not need the physical advantages a prosthetic can give me so I decided for this time of my life I will prosper through every physical challenge that comes my way with the mindset that says I can do anything that I put my mind to with the help of Gods strength and courage that he continues to pour through me everyday. Physical Disabilities have nothing on the strength and power of our God and for that reason I will trust Him everyday to get me through every step along the way and this will always be my reason 💛
