Am Terusasira Resty an amputee through knee left leg from Uganda and a single mum of three.l can't tell how it's feels like to have two legs because I've never experienced them I was only 8months when a heavy speady lorry crushed into our home leaving 3of sisters dead and being the only survival and the youngerest and this brought so many questions seeing other kids with two legs and me using a crutch and I could ask why me I couldn't do everything my friends did but still my dad never loved me,he could ask my mum to get me a father because I his family there was no one like me.l was to walk 3km to school at times being carried on the backs of my sister and neighbors in turns until one day catholic nun saw and requested me to take her to make home and that did each and everything for me educated me got me a prosthetic at the age of 9yrs, reaching my secondary education she was given a transfer but still she could send my fees.
At the University I did education after which I went again I did special Needs Education and started working in one of the school by the head teacher said she could manage me in her school because the girls fears me from there I failed to get a school again the question came again why me Lord.l got a soulmate and we had our first born and I told him to go to his home reaching their my mother_in_law never loved me alot she asked her son why amongst all women in toy he could pick a disabled,unclean, undesirable, crippled and my name disgusting names I tell I didn't sleep that night I left and question came back again Why me,he came back as we women are sweet talked we got back again we moved on until when I was there months pregnant of our last born wen his mom told him to leave me and even she came with another woman for him and there they went he never turned back I was operated the third born he heard but never had come to the hospital even sent a coin even up to now I do struggle alone with my kids and I don't know where he is.
I started making crafts and going around teaching the disadvantaged ones making crafts, mats and others and I started a small shop selling crafts and right now my dream I want to start an events shop or company though I don't have capital and my children are in a dangerous stage they need education which is very expensive and also have aheart of helping others I hate seeing others suffering at times I can have like ten people home.
I've learnt alot through my journey and am still struggling but fellow women don't throw your kids on dustbin remember God I'd there and opens the door for you if don't you don't give up.l always tell my kids God will make away let's keep praying and working hard we go to the garden together,we make crafts together.
So fellow ladies we need your prayers and help
And my song is One day at a time.Lets put hands together to fight discrimination amongst women because I've learnt one thing that we women who make our fellow cry and suffering because this woman they had brought to marry my man she had refused may be the man would have turned back.
Anyway I stopped crying for poured milk but look at future and be a lesson for other women now my worry is to have a good business which can look after my kids and buy myself a prosthetic.
Am really very greatful to have shared my story to you ladies although not the best forgive me where I have gone wrong.
Be blessed always
I remain yours sincerely
