“I love playing football. Initially, I faced problems in balancing, I was scared but now I have gained confidence.My friends support me a lot. I hope I will score a goal soon,” Kunal told ANI.
“The birth of my son was an emotional rollercoaster ride. I was excited that I had become a mother, but also overwhelmed to know that my child was born without a leg. I told myself special people are blessed with special kids and vowed to never let him feel different from his peers’, said the Class 4 student’s mother.
