Each of us has a hero. There is someone we look up to, no matter who we are or who they are. Someone who motivates and encourages us. It may be your mother, an actress, or someone who has achieved success in their field. You, on the other hand, want to believe you have something in common with them. Something that could be able to assist you in reaching their level. That was the situation for this child when he met his soccer idol. Florida native Joseph Tidd was born without his left forearm. He has learned to live his life with only one hand at the age of two. Many easy chores are much more difficult for him, yet he has surmounted every challenge.
Colleen and Miles Tidd, his parents, formed a community of support to assist him. Family, friends, and, of course, role models were all engaged. Carson Pickett, a soccer player, was one such role model. Carson, like Joseph, is a member of the Orlando Pride and was born without her left forearm. It hasn’t prevented her from reaching her goals, though. Carson became Joseph’s hero the moment he saw her on TV. Things for Joseph, on the other hand, we’re only going to get better. When the two first met in April, Carson exclaimed, “We have the same arm!” Nothing could have been more reassuring to Joseph. Then, using their left limbs, they shared a “fist bump.”
Joseph couldn’t stop grinning. Joseph has watched Carson play several times since their initial encounter, usually sitting in the front row and fist-bumping his favorite soccer player. His mother said the amount of good knowledge that has spread is “phenomenal.” Finally, Carson has someone to look up to who is similar to him.
