Twenty seven year old Christian Arndt was born without both his hands and legs. He has no limbs due to an extremely rare condition known as Tetra-Amelia Syndrome. At his age, Christian weighs around 20kg. When he was born, his biological parents put him up for adoption, luckily his loving parents Gisela Arndt and her husband adopted him and gave him his forever family. Gisela does everything for her son, from washing, shaving and dressing him.
Although Christian is not able to eat or walk on his own, he is very determined to live life to the fullest, with hopes to have a wife and children of his own. “At the time the doctors explained to my foster mother that i was born like this as a result of a genetic defect, the likelihood of this happening is a 1000 less than winning the national lottery.” Christian explained.
Gisela who is now 75 years old took in her son twenty even years ago, and has since put his needs before hers always. Christian said, “Basically, I can do nothing for myself except think and speak.” Christian is currently taking a distance learning course in IT and media with the University of Lubeck.
