Caleb, Vancouver, Washington

Hi, my name is Caleb. I am 8 years old and I was born with no left hand. Everybody is different. I like to play sports and baseball and I like to play monster trucks with my best friend in the backyard. Sometimes I also like to play video games. I think I like the way I am.

Prosthetics are kind of different than your regular hands. My parents asked me if I wanted a prosthetic, but I said "nah, I like myself the way I am." Everybody knows their parents love them just the way they are.

One time when we lived in Arizona we got to meet Jim Abbott at a card collectors show. I got to talk to him outside and spend about 20 minutes by myself with him. A TV reporter made a video for my family of the meeting for us and I got to be on the TV news. Jim Abbott was a baseball pitcher, he was really really nice. I even got to play catch with him for a couple of minutes. Right now my mom is reading the book "No Excuses" by Kyle Maynard. He was born with really short arms and legs.

To communicate with Caleb, you may contact his parents via email.

If you want to be a SuperHands Kid or Hero, or know any inspiring stories that would be a benefit to this site's viewers, please send me an email. Thank You!
