My name is Ryan Haack. I have one hand. I was born in 1977 missing my left forearm and have remained as such ever since. It’s cool, though. In fact, missing my hand never made a bit of difference to me as I was growing-up. I was just a regular kid who loved sports and got into trouble from time-to-time. It wasn’t until a couple years ago that I even realized there were more people out there “like me.” With that realization fresh in my mind, I launched this blog with the hopes of sharing my experience and helping others in the same situation.
This goes beyond just the limb-different community, though. I desire to help people realize they are valuable. They are lovable. They are important. They are awesome!
Hopefully my story, my life, will help you to find and live yours.
