Twelve years ago a thirteen year old surfer named Bethany Hamilton was attacked by a shark in Hawaii. She lived to tell the tale, but lost an arm. Amazingly that horrible incident didn’t stop her from surfing professionally and living her life. Earlier this month Hamilton birth to her first child, Tobias!
Not only brave, but an inspiration for everyone, Bethany (now 25) seems to do more than people with two arms. She appeared on The Amazing Race last year. Plus she even surfed when she was six months pregnant! This is the first child for her and her husband, Adam Dirks.
Check out her books on Amazon.
