Sarah was quoted saying that she never let the absence of her upper limbs be a hurdle for her as a kid. She was quoted saying that she did the same activities as any child her age with her feet. “I did the same thing with my feet as a baby does with its hands and made a mess. My brain was connecting to my feet,” she said.

She later added, “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.”

At the time of the birth of her daughter Lilia, Sarah said she was scared of picking her up with her feet but she got used to it eventually. She added that her husband also supports her a lot with chores and taking care of Lilia but she has also learnt to do those things by herself.

Many users leave appreciative comments for the 38-year-old and say that she is an inspiration to them.
