Can you imagine a mother living her daily life with no arms? I know it’s very hard to imagine what it’s like to live in such a condition. But 38-year-old Sarah Talibi is an inspiration. She is a brave and skillful mother with no arms who dresses her toddler and paints, all using her feet.

Although she was born without arms, Sarah didn’t see herself as different. She learned to eat, dress, and brush her hair using her feet and Sarah is a wonderful mother.

As she got older, she became even more skillful. She learned other skills like chopping vegetables and doing her make-up – all with her toes. Being a mother, Sarah faced some challenges, but according to Sarah, she believes that every mother in the world has challenges, whether they live with birth differences or not.

Sarah didn’t think her missing arms were a problem when she was a little kid. “I did the same thing with my feet as a baby does with its hands and made a mess,” Sarah explained, “so my brain was connecting to my feet.” With my feet, I could do anything a toddler of the same age could do. I could eat as I grew older, but I struggled to write. Those things came later; I picked them up since it was a formative period in my life.”

 

Now, Sarah has a 3-year-old daughter who she cooks for and plays with. Her name is Lilia. Lovely Lilia was born in 2018, and her brave mother was able to do just about everything to take care of her daughter herself.

“I began to document my journey as I was frustrated to need some help to take care of my baby,” she said. “So I decided to make those moments a creative moment.”

Later, she started a social media page and YouTube channel to demonstrate how she lives her daily life and performs everyday tasks like putting on makeup, washing dishes, etc. Since she was a toddler, she effortlessly used her feet to dress, play, and even write.

She can do literally anything. “I can do anything with my feet as long as I don’t have shoes on,” she explained. ‘I put my make-up on, dress, cook, shower, look after Lilia, I can do everything I want.”

According to Sarah, Lilia is her greatest accomplishment. She admits that it was hard to ask for help at first. But eventually, she realized that accepting limitations freed her mind and body and allowed her to fully enjoy being a mother.

“Loving a child and being responsible is beyond everything,” she said. “Some mothers struggle with so many other difficulties. I think we all have our own disabilities and barriers.”

“It is a huge achievement becoming a mum,” she said. “It’s my best achievement … But my disability had to adapt to having a baby. Now I have two years of experience and I can do everything with my daughter. She holds me by my sleeve when we walk along the street. It’s unbelievable, she’s holding it like a hand.”

“I have adapted entirely myself and I can do everything I want,” she said. “I don’t let it hold me back.”
