His mother left him in an orphanage as a “monster” baby. But today, this young man is actually enjoying life.
Born to a woman exposed to radiation, Tim Mason was born without legs and a left arm. Shortly after his birth, his mother left him in an orphanage because she did not want to raise a “monster.”
His mission is to inspire and encourage others.
He now goes by the name “Team One Limb” on TikTok and is on a mission to show the world that one limb is enough to make a difference, inspiring and encouraging many others with his positive attitude despite his obvious physical disabilities.
“When I came out of the womb, I was like this. I was half-baked, but delicious,” explains Tim.
When he heard about his mother’s statement while she was leaving him at the orphanage, he thought that if he really was a monster, he would be the friendliest monster.
Watch Tim’s story in the video below.
“I am very grateful because it gave me the opportunity to be where I am today in my life. I think that if it were otherwise, I wouldn’t have the freedom and independence to be who I am now.”
He is grateful to his mother who adopted him.
This helped him to be who he is: independent and vocal about his needs, and to be treated like any other normal person who has to do everyday tasks like cleaning, cooking, and going to school.
“Yes, I have a disability, but I’m not going to let that stop me, and I’m not going to use that as a reason not to get up and try.”
